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 10mg syrup for a toothache
1 Reply RSS
Hi. My husband has a toothache. Can hydroxyzine 10mg syrup stop the pain from the toothache he has? Please let me know. It's bad. ## No, this medication is an antihistamine that is also used as to treat anxiety, and insomnia, but it will not do anything to alleviate pain. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including dizziness, drowsiness, sedation, and somnolence. Has he consulted his dentist? Does he typically experience dental issues?

hydroxyzine why prescribed?
4 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 Pamoate 100 Mg Cap
4 Replies RSS
Has anyone else had a hard time lately getting this medication from their pharmacy? The last couple/few times i've needed it, i've had to call around to different CVS's. My regular CVS hasn't had it for at least the past couple of months. Last month, i got it filled at another CVS downtown, but this month they only have 3 in stock, so i called yet another CVS and luckily they had them in stock. What a hassle to get my medication. I live in Lowell, MA. Thank you. ## I'm not finding any shortages listed for this medication. Have you considered trying a pharmacy other than CVS? It seems unusual to me that they wouldn't have it in stock, or get it in stock, if they know they have a regular customer that needs it. I know several pharmacy chains here in Washington that...

green capsule marked with 25mg and Watson
1 Reply RSS
This Capsule is half light green with 25 mg on it and half dark green with Watson on it and another marking under Watson that I can't read. ## Yeah, some of them are very hard to make out, since the print is so tiny. However, I believe what you have found has the marking of WATSON over 800 and the 25mg on the other half, Watson Pharmaceuticals lists its as containing 25mgs of Hydroxyzine, which is an antihistamine that is also used for its sedative like effects to treat anxiety, and insomnia. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including dizziness, dry mouth, drowsiness, and somnolence. Is there anything else I can help with?

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...

Hydroxyzine 25 mg overdose effects and safety
1 Reply RSS
My wife took 10 tablets of 25mg hydroxyzine. Is that ok? She is suffering from anxiety and she said this helps her to go to sleep. ## No, that is a dangerous amount to take and she should seek medical attention. It is never safe to take more of a medication than one's doctor has prescribed. Did she experience any adverse effects? The FDA warns that taking this amount could be fatal, due to it's sedative like effects, which can cause issues breathing, as well as lowered heart rate and lowered blood pressure. How much has her doctor told her to take?
