Answer
Hi Brother Werewolf,
I am surprised that Cetirizine is not giving you the desired effect. Yet if hydroxyzine helps you, go ahead and take it. In fact cetirizine is a metabolite of hydroxyzine and when you  take hydroxyzine it gets converted in the body to cetirizine. For this reason I am surprised that cetirizine is not helping you.
All the best
Ravi
