Hydroxyzine Overview

Hydroxyzine (/hadrkszin/; sold as Vistaril, Atarax) is a first-generation antihistamine of the diphenylmethane and piperazine class.

generic medication similar to hydroxyzine hcl
Want to find a generic medication that is similar to Hydroxyzine HCL 25 mg. It also has to be covered by Independent Health Encompass Esstential 65.Plus can you give me the cost of it? Thank You ## Hello, Florence! How are you? Hydroxyzine is a generic and is usually one of the cheapest available in the diuretic category. I am also afraid that I have no way of knowing what is and isn't covered by your insurance, nor do I have prices to quote you, since this website does not manufacture, prescribe, nor sell any medications, it is an information only site. Have you discussed the issue with your doctor and pharmacist? They would be best able to help you discover what you can take that will also be covered by your insurance.

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