What can happen if you're taking 50 mg of Hydroxyzine for itching? ## Hello, Seleah! How are you? The FDA classifies Hydroxyzine as an antihistamine that is also used for its sedative like effects, so a higher dose may exacerbate those effects and someone taking 50mgs may experience side effects, such as dizziness, drowsiness, strong sedation and somnolence. They should also only take that dosage, if that's the amount their doctor has prescribed. Are there any other questions or concerns?

I was prescribed hydroxyzine for itching with a bad case of poison ivy. I found that helped with my mild anxiety. Is there anything similar over the counter that I can purchase for the anxiety? Thanks! ## Hello, Hearher! How are you? Unfortunately no, there is nothing as potent available over the counter. Have you tried anything else to treat the anxiety? There are quite a few non-habit forming options that your doctor can prescribe, such as Prozac. The FDA classifies it as an SSRI antidepressant and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight loss.

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?
