Question: Does norvasc cause itching?
Answered by Dr. Michelle Gibson James 43 minutes later
Brief Answer:
it is a rare but possible side effect

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Itching/pruritis (how it would be written in side effect profile) can occur in 1 to 2 % (1 or 2 persons out of 100) of persons who use this medication.

This means that it is a possible side effect though it does not occur commonly

It would be best to speak to your doctor about this possibility.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
