Dear Joslin,
I would suggest you to contact dermatologist for your itching. I am surprised that you are taking atarax pills for so long.Hope it was under medical supervision.You can start on folic acid . However, if you do not conceive within next 6 months, you should contact a gynaecologist.

All the Best.

hi,joslin
sudden stop of medicins can cause some effect on body, as you are taking it since 7 yrs your body is used to it, so reduced the dose gradually. consult your gynac for this.
