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...

Can I cut the pill in half? I use it to help me sleep. The pill is too strong. Do I have to take the whole pill? I notice it has a coating on it. ## Hello, Darlene! How are you? There is no time released Hydroxyzine, so that should be okay, unless your doctor feels there is some reason not to do so, but it might taste horrible, once some of the coating has been removed. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, and sedation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Yeah i believe you can cut it if it's too strong. But it is also advisable to consult a doctor and ask for advice before doing so. Then you will be sure of what you are doing. So it's left to you to decide

hydroxyzine why prescribed?

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...

How Many Hydroxyzine 25 Mg Do I Take To Equal 2 Xanax
7 Replies RSS
how many hydroxyzine 25 mg do i take to equal 2 mg xanax ## They are not in the same class of medications, so there is no way to convert one to the other. Xanax contains the active ingredient Alprazolam, which is a Benzodiazepine that's most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. Learn more Xanax details here. However, Hydroxyzine is an antihistamine that's used to treat allergic reactions, insomnia, to prevent nausea and for its sedative like effects. Learn more Hydroxyzine details here. So, they just aren't interchangeable and, for either one, you shouldn't take more than your doctor has prescribed, because doing so may be dangerous. Is there anything else I can help with? ## how many hydroxyzine pamoate 25mg will equal to 2mg xanax ## Is it safe to take...

I have itching with no rash, Dr prescribed this rx yesterday and so far not much relief ## Hello, Karen! How are you? They should have started having some effect within 15 to 20 minutes of taking one. The FDA classifies this medication as an antihistamine and it is used to treat allergic reactions. Its typical side effects may include dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, somnolence and sedation. However, if the itching isn't due to an allergy, then these pills won't help. Are you on any other medications? ## I was prescribed hydroxyzine (50mg, 6x a day) for itching caused by psoriasis, an autoimmune disease. It worked very well but I also slept a lot at first.

please send me a picture of these pills. thank you, Janie Hutchins ## I'm sorry, but due to copyright reasons, I don't have a picture to post or send to you. I can tell you, however, that the 25mg Hydroxyzine manufactured by Glenmark should be a round, white tablet, with the letters IG on one side and the numbers 276 on the opposite side. Does this match the tablets in question? If not, please post back with their markings and I will gladly check them for you. ## I have them text my phone so i can send you a picture {edited for privacy} ## My pills are beige with IG 276 ## The writings on the pill is correct but the color is not white it is beige

hydroxyzine for pain

I was prescribed hydroxyzine for sleep but noticed that it killed my arthritis pain. Why does an antihistamine kill my pain? ## Hello, Rachel! How are you? It could be due to its sedative like effects, since a lot of pain is caused by an excitation of the nerves. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including dizziness, drowsiness and dry mouth. If it works for your pain, that's awesome!!! Is there anything else I can help with?
