Hydroxyzine Overview

Hydroxyzine (/hadrkszin/) is a first-generation antihistamine of the diphenylmethane and piperazine class. It was first synthesized by Union Chimique Belge in 1956 and was marketed by Pfizer in the United States later the same year,[2] and is still in widespread use today. Due to its antagonistic effects on several receptor systems in the brain, hydroxyzine has strong anxiolytic and mild antiobsessive as well as antipsychotic properties.[3] Today it is used primarily for the symptomatic relie...

hydroxyzine why prescribed?
3 Replies RSS
I have a bottle of HYDGROXYZ PAM 25MG and the pharmacist has written Take 1 capsule every 6 hours as needed for pain. I got this from a PA a week after having surgery on my shoulder. So, I'm confused as why it says on here not for pain. ## Hello, Colleen! How are you? No, this medication is an antihistamine that is most commonly used to treat allergic reactions and for its sedative like effects that can help with anxiety. I've never heard of it being prescribed for pain. Even when used for anesthesia, sometimes, it is combined with other medications, not used alone. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including dizziness, drowsiness, and dry mouth. I wonder if there was some mix up and they meant to prescribe Hydrocodone, which is a narcotic analgesic? Have you ca...

hydroxyzine: k 11 pill vs E613 pill
1 Reply RSS
I know both are hydroxyzine but are they basically the same thing? I had a prescription for the k 11 but ran out and was prescribed the E613 version but want to know if they are the same? ## Hello, Tomy! How are you? Yes, according to the NIH database, they both contain 25mgs of Hydroxyzine, they are just manufactured by different companies, which is very common with generics. Whichever one your pharmacy carries may vary, depending on what company was offering the cheapest price, at the time they needed to restock their supply. It's how they help keep prices down for underinsured, or uninsured patients. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including dizziness, drowsiness, and sedation.

Hydroxyzine hcl otc alternatives?
1 Reply RSS
I need the best over the counter meds available as an alternative to hydroxyzine hcl. They say zyrtec, benadryl & bonine are good substitutes? Plz verify. Are there any others? I'm looking for a calming effect. ## The most calming of those choices would be the Benadryl, which is also available as a generic, but you should only take it if your doctor agrees that it is safe for you. It can also cause drowsiness and dizziness as a side effect, according to NIH reports. Is there anything else I can help with?

hydroxyzine pam 50mg side effects
2 Replies RSS
I am expercing left arm tingling and left leg pain, I am taking Hydroxyzine Pamoate 50 Mg, Bupropion Sr 150 Mg, Buspirone 15 Mg, Risperidone 1 Mg. Could these cause the Symptons I am Having? ## Hi Nikki, According to nih.gov (MedlinePlus), Bupropion Sr and Risperidone are both known to cause muscle or joint pain as a potentially serious side effect. Judging from your description, it sounds like your best bet would be to talk with your doctor about this concern to see if there are any other alternative options that can effectively replace either of those medications. Serious side effects can also be reported to the FDA's MedWatch program at: fda.gov/Safety/MedWatch/default.htm You can learn more about each drug on the page for Bupropion Details and Risperidone Details I hope this inf...

Never seen a pill this color I'm thinking its some type of designer pill since i can't find it and the source it came from ## Hi Sloth, While I'm not exactly sure what pill you have there, I do know that Actavis Pharmaceuticals is known for putting a half moon logo on their tablets. That said, I'd probably encourage you to contact the manufacturer directly for more specific details on what this might be. NOTE: As of August 3rd 2016, Actavis has reportedly been acquired by Teva Pharmaceuticals, so any reference to Actavis is now a part of Teva; whom you can reach via email at USMedInfo@tevapharm.com (for product information inquiries). Whereabouts did you get it from? ## I am having the same problem identifying this pill. Have you had any luck? ## Hydroxyzine 25mg Class 1...

Occasional Anxiety Flare-up When taking Hydroxyzine
2 Replies RSS
Hello, I have taken Hydroxyzine for about a year now. I have found that it works better if I take it at night before bed. I take it for anxiety. I take it at night because it helps me feel more even through out the day. At first I took it only during flare-ups but it was like a roller coaster. Now, occasionally, about one time every 6 weeks, I get an anxiety Flare-up where I have to take an additional dose in the mid morning to settle it down. Is this normal ? What does this mean ? I am 46. Healthy, and some depression kicks in once in a while, I sleep very well and have no other issues. Definitely feel like a mid life crisis. I had to cut out caffeine and alcohol consumption completely and exercise helps. Will I have anxiety forever ? Is Hydroxyzine damaging to my body ? Thank You ## H...
