Hydroxyzine Overview

Hydroxyzine (/hadrkszin/; sold as Vistaril, Atarax) 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.

How Many Hydroxyzine 25 Mg Do I Take To Equal 2 Xanax
5 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...

white round pill with n004

The pill with that imprint is basically the same as an oxy 10 and will sometimes be used by pharmacys as a generic pill if they are out. I know this because I own a pharmacy and have had trouble with a few customers about it. ## Once again, this information is incorrect. This tablet is manufactured by Northstar Rx and they list it as containing 25mgs of Hydroxyzine. The FDA classifies this medication as an antihistamine that's used to treat allergic reactions and for its sedative like effects. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, sedation and somnolence. It is not a narcotic of any type. Is there anything I can help with? ## So r u saying that this actually oxy?

orange and yellow capsule with barr printed on it and the numbers 323 on one end and 25 on the other end

I found these capsules in my sons coat and want to know what they are. ## These tablets contain 25mgs of Hydroxyzine, it is an antihistamine that is used to treat allergic reactions, insomnia and to treat or prevent nausea and vomiting. Common side effects might include: dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and headache. More details: Is there anything else I can help you with? ## If it is a capsule then it is the pamoate version of hydroxyzine. Unlike the Hydrochloride version of hydroxyzine (Atarax,) Hydroxyzine pamoate (Vistaril) is used for drowzieness which is probably a cause for concern. Atarax is the version of hydroxyzine used for allergic reactions. I would be concerned your son is not using this for allergys.
