Hello,

I am concerned with your health. Since you can have allergy to any of the medication you are taking and some of the medicines like Glyburide, Amlodipine and Nexium can cause liver dysfunction as well which can lead to itching. I suggest you to visit your doctor to check your liver function tests if any of the above drugs are culprit or not.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Sameen Bin Naeem, General & Family Physician
