Will hydroxyzine HCL 10mg work for anxiety even if i take it at night time. I dont want to drive while on medication. Is the first day i will be taking it. Ive also read that this medication will make you gain weight, im already scare of having an anxiety attack and finally get some medicine that will help me but thinking of gaining weight makes me panick even more.

Hello, Kimmy! How are you?

It will still have some effect, but it might not be enough. When did your doctor tell you to take it?

It can cause a good bit of drowsiness and dizziness, so you likely shouldn't be driving for awhile, until you know how much it affects you. Yes, it can also cause increased appetite and weight gain, since it is an antihistamine and most of them are known to do that. However, there's no way of knowing if you will gain weight, while taking it. The only thing you can do is try it and see if you experience that side effect.

Do you typically gain weight from medications?

My prescription is 1 tablet every night to help sleep as well. My Dr said that medicine is not adictive as the others they have for anxiety. He thinks im too young to suffer with anxiety. But the feeling is horrible and i try to relax the most i can accept it and not fight it because it will make it worse but days is just so bad i cry none stop. I had experienced this before but never as bad as now. I just know it the might before it started i got very drunk im not a drinker first time and i feel like it has ruin my life ive been experiencing this for 2 weeks now.

I am very sorry, Kimmy!

Getting drunk once would not cause an ongoing problem, those effects would just be temporary.

And that is correct, this medication isn't habit forming. How has it been working for you, so far?

I had never experienced anything like this well not as bad as is now I just know the night before I did drink heavily I never drink if I do is maybe 1 beer like every 6 months but this time was more than what I could handle since I don't drink much and that's when it all started the following morning and has not gone away.

What type of doctor did you consult?

You might be better served to see a specialist, such as a counselor or psychiatrist.
