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...

How Many Hydroxyzine 25 Mg Do I Take To Equal 2 Xanax
11 Replies RSS
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 ## Is it safe to take...

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... Cla...

Is it safe to take bupropion SR and hydroxizine pamoate at the same time for anxiety and depression? ## Hello, Sherry! How are you? I didn't find any problems or interactions listed between these two medications, but it's always best to double check such information to be safe. As listed by the FDA, Bupropion may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and drowsiness. Hydroxyzine may cause side effects including dizziness, drowsiness, sedation and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I read somewhere in a pharmacology textbook that using both can possibly increase your risk of seizure with bupropion. Though your dose for bupropion needs to be 200mg or more and you would need to take your hydroxyzine at the same time for the seizure risk to be he...

hydroxyzine pamoate dosing regimen
1 Reply RSS
My Rx hydroxyzine pamoate says to take one capsule three times a day as needed. It's 50mg, does that mean I don't have to take it at a scheduled time? Please clear this up for me. Thank you. ## That is correct, that means that while the dosing should be at least 8 hours apart, if you don't need one at the next schedule dosing time, you do not have to take one. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?
