Hydroxyzine Weight Gain/Bloat/Constipation. Gah!
I was prescribed 25mg of Hydroxyzine "as needed" for itching. Originally it was 4 times a day but taking just one will throw me for a loop and I told them to change the written dosage. I have eczema and sometimes the flare up is very bad (bleeding, flaking, peeling, along with the horrible itching) so the only time I take it is when I have a flare up and it gets so bad I can't sleep. But this stuff, #1 - if I take it more than 3 days in a row (just one pill at night, mind you) I will get constipation *bad*. I have also wound up gaining weight during the time I had to take it regularly and haven't been able to lose the weight yet- all in my stomach - like "bloat". It's not worth it anymore. I would rather be up all night itching than walk around feeling like I'm about to die from the constipation and not fit my pants because of this bloat. The only relief I've been able to get is spraying some pure witch hazel on the effected areas - and "Lanacane" - I've tried all other OTCs and Lanacane was the only one to work for me. The ointment/creams - I must warn all of you - a small percentage of people with eczema wind up with allergies to a chemical called propylene glycol. Check the labels of anything before you buy it. The ointment the doctor gave me had PG in it - and I broke in both massive welts and a bright red rash at the same time - in places where I didn't even apply the ointment. I wound up having to take TWO hydroxyine to counter it (on advice of the phone's advice nurse) and if it hadn't worked - I would've had to go to the ER. So be careful - if you get a very bad reaction to any ointment and cream, see if PG is the culprit.

Have you tried switching out your soaps? My sister bought me "Sappo Soap" it's oatmeal and aloe vera, very mild and lasts long. Also some witch hazel on the areas where the itch is. I've had too many side effects with Hydroxyzine and decided to change up as much as I could- like ALL no allergen detergent for clothes, the oatmeal soap, etc. (Or Basis soap if you can't find Sappo) it's helped a lot for me. Hope it works for you - and make sure you don't have an allergy to Propylene Glycol. I swi
