This is not a substitute for Atarax, it is the generic version of it, so it is the same thing and is used to treat the same things.

I have been itching myself for the past week and a half. I started taking hydroxyz today (25MG). It has not yet worked for me. I took it about four hours ago, and no relief from the itching! It's kinda driving me crazy. What should I do? Give it more time? Or wait and see how/if it works after I take another?

My experience is that this is the doctors' go-to prescription because 1) it's notoriously difficult to figure out the CAUSE of general hives / itching, and 2) it often WILL take care of the problem. Suggest you give it no more than a day or so before contacting the doctor's office to report that it's NOT working for you. Be sure to think back to the few days or so before the itching began; these symptoms often begin immediately upon your coming into contact with something, so your history may provide a clue to the cause, which then can be treated. Good Luck.

I received hcl by my dermatologist a while back for rosacia on my face. However, now I have shingles or a rash on my back and it is going away with calamine but still itches. My hcl exp. 7/12/09, will they still work for my back?
