Can Vistaril Cause You To Feel High
i was wondering if Vistaril can make you feel a little bit "off"? ## Vistaril contains the active ingredient Hydroxyzine, it is an antihistamine that is used to treat allergic reactions and, sometimes, for its sedative like effects. It will not get someone high, it's normal side effects include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and impaired coordination. Learn more: Are there any other questions? ## You asked about Vistaril.

So...NO do NOT experiment with this medication. If it is prescribed for you - take it in the proper dosage. If it is not prescribed - don't mess around with it! It...

Is there a over the counter medicine for vistaril ## Hello, BJ! How are you? No, the closest you could get would most likely be Benadryl, which contains the active ingredient Diphenhydramine. It's an excellent antihistamine and usually the first choice used in most ERs to treat allergic reactions, but it doesn't have the same potent sedating effects that Vistaril does. If you need to switch, please check the safety of doing so with your doctor. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I am allergic to diphenhydromene. would this be suffice?

Is vista often prescribed to pregnant women to relax them or make them sleep?

Vistaril showing up as benzo on a drug test
I was taking vistaril and failed a drug test for benzo. I was just wondering if it can show up as benzo? I need proof for court and dont know what to do. ## Yes, vistaril has some similarities with benzos. Vistaril however is prescribed for itchiness, sleep as well as mild anxiety. Although they are two separate drugs, both benzos and vistaril share a very common chemical structure which may cause a drug test to read vistaril as a benzo. Hope this helps good luck.

oblong white watson 349 ## THIS IS A NARCOTIC!!! THIS IS NOT VISTARIL! And taking it as such would be VERY DANGEROUS! THIS IS A NARCOTIC!!! This tablet contains Acetaminophen 500mgs and Hydrocodone 5mgs, this is a generic for Vicodin! This is a very potent narcotic analgesic. This is used to treat moderate to severe chronic pain. It can cause many side effects and has high addictive potential. So this IS NOT VISTARIL and is in now way relate to it and acts in the body in a completely different way!!! ## LOL! Hope I made the warning clear enough! ;-) I have also removed the incorrect response to avoid any confusion in the future from others who may read this post. They were correct on what Vistaril can be used for, but this is not even close to being the same type of medication.
