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...

expired pills is it safe to take

last year i broke out in hives so the dr. proscribed hydroxyzine hcl 25 mg. . I broke out in hives again wanted to take the pills but they expired in march 2012 is it bad if i take them . ## Hi Peggy, According to Harvard Medical School family health article, except in rare cases (i.e. tetracycline), there is little chance of danger due to taking medications even up to 15 years beyond their expiration date. This conclusion was based upon a study conducted at the request of the US military due to stockpiles of expensive drugs they could otherwise need to replace every few years. The conclusion was that 90% of those drugs remained effective 10 - 15 years after the expiration date. But the question is whether the drug you have kept happens to be one of these drugs from the study... (I have...

hi can someone tell me if there are any possible side effects from taking these two medications together ## Hello, Nefer! How are you?

Bupropion is an antidepressant and smoking cessation aid. Its typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and mood changes. ## Id this medicine also used for withdraw symptoms from alcohol or opiates?

hydroxyzine can it work for pain?
2 Replies RSS
I take gabapentin (Gralise) max dose daily for nerve pain. I get breakthrough pain at night. I have taken A muscle relaxer and hydroxyzine and seems to help some with the nerve pain. Any clues about why as well as if hydroxyzine would work alone for the nerve pain? ## It has some sedative like effects, which is why it is often used for anxiety, so it can cause some relaxation/sedation. That might be why it helps. The FDA lists its other typical side effects as possibly including dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, and headache. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hello.

How do different doses of hydroxyzine work?
2 Replies RSS
My boyfriend was prescribed to take (2) 25 mg tabs of hydroxyzine at night but it doesn't work that well and when he takes (1) of my 50 mg tabs it's more effective and works better. Does the higher dosage of the same medication absorb differently or quicker than the lower dosage? ## No, there should not be any significant difference. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, hypotension, and dehydration. What issues is he experiencing that makes him feel that taking 2 of the 25mg tablets isn't working as well? Has he consulted his doctor about prescribing the 50mg dose? ## He was originally prescribed it when he had hives last year and i think he started taking 2 because 1 tab wasnt really working for the i...

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...
