  • Weight Gain

    I recently (2 months ago) added 10 mg of Hydroxine to my repertoire of drugs. I have noticed that I have had a slight weight gain since the addition of this drug (5 to 6 lbs). I was wondering if anyone else has had this effect?

    I was told that this med is used for children to gain weight. It does increase appitite in some people.

    My are with you all. May you all find a way to peace and joy in your lives.

      Yes, unfortunately I've had this experience too. I've been taking the hydroxyzine though for almost a year because it has been very helpful for me. If anyone knows of a similar medication that doesn't have a chance of causing increased appetite or weight gain, please share.
