My friend is also using it for about 4 months but has stopped as she has put on in weight about 10kg.
Hi, weight gain has been listed as a very common side effect from atarax. Apparently it causes an increased appetite but also there is talk about it altering your metabolism? From reading posts from people that are on antihistamine treatment, benedryl appears to be much better regarding weight gain. I can't personally testify this info, so maybe you should contact your doctor. I don't think you are alone though. I have taken phenergan in the past and i didn't notice weight gain.
