In brief: Dry skin or hives
Low thyroid hormone levels can cause dry skin that can lead to itching.
There is some data that the presence of thyroid antibodies (which caused the hypothyroidism) can cause hives.

In brief: Not really
The medication per se should not cause itching, thyroid disease not controlled could cause itchiness, make sure that you have your thyroid leveled with a blood test done by your doctor.
