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...

Hydroxyzine 25mg with Tramadol 50mg
1 Reply RSS
My dosage on Tramadol is 50mg. Can I take Hydroxyzine 25mg safely with this other medication? ## You should not take them together, unless your doctor has told you to do so. Taking them both together could cause depression of the central nervous system, according to the FDA. It could depress it to the point of being fatal. Are these the only medications you take?

Hydroxyzine Hcl 25 Mg Substitue
2 Replies RSS
What over the counter med can I take in place of Hydroxyzine hcl 25mg? ## Hydroxyzine is used to relieve the itching caused by allergies and to control the nausea and vomiting caused by various conditions, including motion sickness. It is also used for anxiety and to treat the symptoms of alcohol withdrawal. I'm not sure if it has any other uses outside of those mentioned above, but if you're looking for a replacement medication, I think it'll largely depend on what reasons you're taking it for? ## Need hydroxyzine for allergies,nausea,anxiety trying to wean off of lithium and lamotrigine this is my second week. So far so good. I am so sick of prescription meds

How Many Hydroxyzine 25 Mg Do I Take To Equal 2 Xanax
10 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...

hydroxyzine why prescribed?
3 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...

hydroxyzine: k 11 pill vs E613 pill
1 Reply RSS
I know both are hydroxyzine but are they basically the same thing? I had a prescription for the k 11 but ran out and was prescribed the E613 version but want to know if they are the same? ## Hello, Tomy! How are you? Yes, according to the NIH database, they both contain 25mgs of Hydroxyzine, they are just manufactured by different companies, which is very common with generics. Whichever one your pharmacy carries may vary, depending on what company was offering the cheapest price, at the time they needed to restock their supply. It's how they help keep prices down for underinsured, or uninsured patients. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including dizziness, drowsiness, and sedation.

Hydroxyzine hcl otc alternatives?
1 Reply RSS
I need the best over the counter meds available as an alternative to hydroxyzine hcl. They say zyrtec, benadryl & bonine are good substitutes? Plz verify. Are there any others? I'm looking for a calming effect. ## The most calming of those choices would be the Benadryl, which is also available as a generic, but you should only take it if your doctor agrees that it is safe for you. It can also cause drowsiness and dizziness as a side effect, according to NIH reports. Is there anything else I can help with?
