Yes: Celexa can potentially affect appetite and make one tired. Vistaril (hydroxyzine) can cause tiredness as well, but doesn't impact appetite directly. However, these side effects can be potentially addressed by adjustments in the dose amount and timing. Are you experiencing any benefit so far? Recommend discussing further with your doctor regarding options to improve tolerability. Hope this helps. All the best .
