There are no interactions between HCTZ and Norvasc though persons react differently to medication.

Other causes of generalized itching would be liver disease, kidney disease, thyroid disease, infection, allergic reaction. You would need to be assessed to one of these conditions.

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