Hydroxyzine Overview

Hydroxyzine (/hadrkszin/; sold as Vistaril, Atarax) 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.

hydroxyzine pamoate 50mg
Can i take two hydroxyzine pamoate that are 50mg at one time at night. ## Hello, Lala! How are you? It can be used in doses up to 100mgs, but how much has your doctor told you to take? This medication can have some serious sedative like effects, so it may not be safe for you to double the dosage. Side effects may include drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth.

hydroxyzine hcl 25 mg for post sunburn itch
I have a prickly, burning, deep itching on my upper arms that started about 1 month after a deep sunburn. If I touch it, the itching becomes relentless and VERY uncomfortable. I have used cortizone cream, fungal cream, Vicks (as per suggestion on Internet), aloe; but the itching continues. There are also skin-colored bumps that have appeared.

Sorry about the problem that you're having. Hydroxyzine is an antihistamine that is also used for its sedative like effects. Learn more Hydroxyzine details here.

Hydroxyzine White Pill 276 A narcotic in any way
is hydroxyzine a narcotic or volume any type of narcotic in any way at all ## Hi venus, I can't find any information that classifies Hydroxyzine as a narcotic. From what I've read, it is an antihistamine that is sometimes used for premedication as a sedative. However, it supposedly doesn't share the same abuse, dependence, addiction, and toxicity potential of other medications that are used for the same range of therapeutic reasons. Learn More: Hydroxyzine Details I hope this info helps, please post back if you have any more questions or concerns! ## No its not it is used to treat anxiety but its not a benzodiazepine like xanax wish it was though ## Hydroxyzine HCL is a antihistimine used for allergic reactions, itching and as a antiaxiety medication. And due to the fact it ...

hydroxyzine hcl 25mg
What Colors do the 25mg.Pills come in? ## Hello, MeeMe! How are you? What are the markings on the tablet in question? That is what would enable me to identify it for you. This is a generic medication, so it is manufactured by quite a few different companies. Just using on pill identified, I have 6 pages of pills, so I cannot possibly list the colors and descriptions of all the 25mg one for you.

How Many Hydroxyzine 25 Mg Do I Take To Equal 2 Xanax
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 expiration quantity
Should I take an extra pill since it's expired? ## Hello, LoSam! How are you? When did it expire? Doubling up wouldn't be advisable, because if it is still effective, that may result in far too much sedation and depression of the central nervous system, which could put in you danger, due to lowered heart rate and blood pressure.
