I found a small white round pill that has N004 only on one side of it and the other side is blank. ## This tablet is manufactured by Northstar RX and they list it as containing 25mgs of Hydroxyzine. This is an antihistamine that is used to treat allergic reactions and for its sedative like effects. The FDA lists its typical side effect as possibly including dizziness, drowsiness, and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

My son was prescribed this drug because of insomnia and anxiety. Does it work and is there something better, less side effects on the market. Thank you. ## Hello, Sher! How are you? Actually, this is one of the least risky ones that's available. Many of the other medications used for such conditions carry the risk of being habit forming. Hydroxyzine, however, is an antihistamine that has some sedative like properties. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including dizziness, drowsiness and dry mouth. It works well for many people. Does anyone else have any advice to add? ## I AGREE WITH VERWOYN i have been taking for over 3 years for anxiety and it does work within 20 to 30 minutes you will be drowsy and possibly dizzy and may have cotton mouth but it does work well wi...

Hi I was wondering if I could take 2-25mg caps of hydroxyzine? I take 1 twice a day but I didn't know if I could take 2 to sleep. I have trouble falling asleep because I'm always having anxiety attacks at night. I'm wondering if this will help or should I just stick with the 1 capsule? ## Hello, Stephanie! How are you? You should not exceed your doctor's dosing instructions. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, and sedation. However, you could speak to your doctor about raising your dose, they may approve your doing so. Is there anything else I can help with?
