Now knowing that older antihistamines like hydroxyzine make you gain weight, how soon after I stop taking it will I start to lose the weight?

In brief: Depends

Once your appetite returns to normal, you will have to eat less (particularly carbs) and exercise more to lose the weight which was gained.
The speed of loss depends on how much less you eat and how much more you exercise.
