Should be Hydroxizine 50mg for my dogs. Has 277 on one side with IG on the other. Color is Salmon or orange in color. Glenmark Pharm? ## Hello, Erin! How are you? That is the correct identification of this tablet, as listed in the FDA databases. The FDA classifies Hydroxyzine as an antihistamine that is also used as a sedative. Its typical side effects may include drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you for the information. I wasn't sure because I couldn't find it on the internet with both markings and in that color. I know it's generic and I saw one with 277 but not the IG and it was a diabetic tablet.
