User avatar Hello,
A reaction is possible, though not common. You should report any side effects to your doctor who may recommend that you stop the medication and perhaps give you an anti-itching medication. That is really the only way to find out if that is the cause of the itching. Of course other factors can cause such a reaction but it's a matter of elimination to discover it, typically.

Good luck.
