Itchiness after taking duleza & felicita for finger numbness, took avil. Normal to have side effects?

I took Duzela 20 and Felicita for 6 sucessive days as per my doctor`s prescription for numbness on 2 finger of my left hand . On the 7th day after taking this pills , I faced excessive itchiness on my body , specifically on my hands. The itchiness was so intense that I experienced pronounced lesions ( not sure what the correct word is ). Ultimately I had to take Avil 25 to reduce the effect. I asked my doctor who advised me to stop taking Duzela and Felicita. My query is that is it common to have such side effects for these 2 pills ?

DUZELA is DULOXETINE and general pruritis and skin rash are common side effects of this drug.
FELICITA is a B complex vitamin and is very less likely to cause itching.
In all probabilities it is DUZELA which might have caused intense itching to you however your doctor has done right by stopping both the drugs.
