medications including hydroxyzine good for 5 years +
2 Replies RSS
As with most pills, tabs, etc., my pharmacist states that the one year exp. dates are for inventory software programs based on inj's. and other sensitive liquid meds. That said, he let me know, that over 90% of the most popular drugs prescribed, still have over 95% of their potency at 5 years after the Rx date, including hydroxyzine. ## Hello, Marcel! How are you? Thank you for providing such valuable information. The one year expiration from the pharmacy, when they give you a medication, is set, because it's the maximum time that the manufacturer can guarantee the medication will maintain full potency under average storage conditions, as required by the FDA. But yes, a large percentage of them do maintain potency much longer, however, only someone's doctor can say if it is ...

hydroxyzine is it a narcotic
1 Reply RSS
Is Hydroxine the same as Xanax, or Valium ect? ## Hello, Fallon! How are you? None of the medications you've mentioned are narcotics. Hydroxyzine is an antihistamine that's very commonly used for its sedative like properties, as well as to treat insomnia and allergic reactions. The FDA lists its typical side effects as including dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and sedation. Xanax and Valium are benzodiazepines that are commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. The carry the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Is there anything else I can help with?
