In the 2 years I've been taking hydroxyzine I cant seem to shed any weight. I work out 5-6 times a week and don't eat out on a regular basis and I keep track of all my micro nutrients, but I just cant seem to shed any weight. Any thoughts?
It can cause increase in appetite and weight.
YES!!! Within a few months I went from 110 pounds to 178. I have been using restrictive dieting and exercising several days a week, and still cannot lose the weight. I have a visit with my psychiatrist on the 27th of this month, and I plan to speak with him about this. No matter what he says, I will not be taking this medication anymore under any circumstances after I talk to him. This weight gain has destroyed my confidence and self-esteem. I look forward to getting off this medication and dropping all of this weight. So, to answer your question, yes because I am going through the EXACT same thing.
YES. I started taking hydroxyzine about 4 months ago and I am not sure if it was this med or a combo of it with montelukast, and copious amounts of antihistamines (had chronic hives since August of last year (a/b 7 months), including levocetirizine and others. But yeah, I have gone from 120 lbs to 136 pretty quickly. I eat well, could exercise more, but yes it does make you gain weight I suspect. Because research shows chronic use of antihistamines are also known to pack on the pounds. And this possibly too. (For those who are using hydroxyzine for off-label anti-itch properties).
