Atarax 2mg/ml syrup
Hi there, we are travelling in US with our 4 and half year old daughter who suffers from severe chronic urticaria. We had enough atarax to last us the trip but just broke a full bottle, so are ten days short ( she takes 4.5 ml three times a day). Any suggestions about what we could get over the counter in US? Thanks

functons in sleeping for taking iterax 25mg
functions of iterax25mg for good sleep ## fdgfdsa ## It doesnt help. Im still up til morning. ## I believe you men atarax, it's really not a strong drug it is also written for anxiety it has an antihistamine base to it. ask your dr. if you can take Benadryl with it, depending on your condition if you are not a pain patient and you otherwise healthy ask for ambien or lunesta, if you have insurance I hope but those 2 ambien and lunesta are expensive , but heck they've bbeen out awhile so maybe there is a generic.

Expiration Date On Atarax
Can someone tell how long can atarax stay good for please??? ## Hello Med01, Based on my research, U.S. prescription medications are required to have a mandatory expiration date of 1 year from the date the prescription is filled. After a year is up, the medication should still be safe but it will start to lose its potency and can no longer be as effective. However, there are some medications that can become dangerous after they expire. That being said, it's best to not take any medication after its expiration date. Do you have the package that the Atarax came in, or do you remember when the prescription was filled? You can learn more about this drug on the page for Atarax Details I hope this info helps! ## The date is 2011 it's still in the bottle it came in I just wasn't s...

## PLEASE TELL ME WHAT THIS DRUG IS MOST COMINLY USED FOR ## See quoted text below: Atarax is an antihistamine used to relieve the symptoms of common anxiety and tension and, in combination with other medications, to treat anxiety that results from physical illness. It also relieves itching from allergic reactions and can be used as a sedative before and after general anesthesia. Antihistamines work by decreasing the effects of histamine, a chemical the body releases that narrows air passages in the lungs and contributes to inflammation. Antihistamines reduce itching and swelling and dry up secretions from the nose, eyes, and throat. ## my daughter has recently put on 25mg of atarax she isonly 11yrs old and was 10 at the time it was perscribed to her. she had been having panic attacks, ...

saboxone and atarax
is it safe to take both at the same time? ## Hi Sunshine, Unfortunately, my findings state that there are potentially unsafe interactions between these two drugs. Quoted below are the precautions you should be aware of: "Using (suboxone) buprenorphine together with (atarax) hydroxyzine may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also experience some impairment in thinking and judgment. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with these medications. Avoid driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how the medications affect you. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to ...

Over The Counter Substite For Atarax
Over the counter substitute for Atarax ## Atarax contains the active ingredient Hydroxyzine, which is an antihistamine. Since I do not know your medical history, I cannot guess why your doctor may have prescribed it; but it is used to treat allergies, prevent nausea, to treat anxiety as well as some other conditions. In order to recommend a good substitute, one would essentially need to know "why" you're taking this medication in the first place. If you could please post back with more information that would great. I hope this helps!

How Many Atarx 10mg Pills Do i Take
i am 190 pounds how many 10mg atarax pills do i take? ## Hi Jewelz, May I ask for what reason you might be taking this drug? Since this drug seems to have a number of different uses, the dosing instructions are also dependent upon the condition more so than weight. Example: "The usual pediatric dose for anxiety is 50 to 100 mg orally per day in divided doses The alternative dosing regime that is listed for anxiety is 2 mg/kg/day divided every 6 to 8 hours The usual pediatric dose for sedation is 0.6 mg/kg/dose" If you could please post back with the condition you're taking it for, I can better determine what is considered to be a typical dose for someone in that weight range. I hope this helps! ## Hi Jewelz, The dosing information for Atarax varies depending on the condition...
