Chris—Wow! You've been thru the ringer with itching! Thankfully, my itching has responded favorably to moisturizing, moisturizing, moisturizing.

I do take a low-dose antihistamine,10 mg Hydroxyzine (by the way, it is not a steroid) at bedtime, which helps as well. I tried a higher dose but it gave me a drug hangover effect the next morning.

I have reduced showering to once weekly, after which I thoroughly moisturize my skin. Take care and hand in there, Chris!

Thanks for your caring response. I think I meant antihistamine which I think doesn't get along well with gabapentin. Would you like to be my medical editor? I need someone to help me with the terminology.

@tim1028, I remember you….gave yourself a gym membership as a quality of life gift. Good for you. Enjoy.
