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...

last year i broke out in hives so the dr. proscribed hydroxyzine hcl 25 mg. . I broke out in hives again wanted to take the pills but they expired in march 2012 is it bad if i take them . ## Hi Peggy, According to Harvard Medical School family health article, except in rare cases (i.e. tetracycline), there is little chance of danger due to taking medications even up to 15 years beyond their expiration date. This conclusion was based upon a study conducted at the request of the US military due to stockpiles of expensive drugs they could otherwise need to replace every few years. The conclusion was that 90% of those drugs remained effective 10 - 15 years after the expiration date. But the question is whether the drug you have kept happens to be one of these drugs from the study... (I have...

Hydroxyzine Pamoate 100 Mg Cap
3 Replies RSS
Has anyone else had a hard time lately getting this medication from their pharmacy? The last couple/few times i've needed it, i've had to call around to different CVS's. My regular CVS hasn't had it for at least the past couple of months. Last month, i got it filled at another CVS downtown, but this month they only have 3 in stock, so i called yet another CVS and luckily they had them in stock. What a hassle to get my medication. I live in Lowell, MA. Thank you. ## I'm not finding any shortages listed for this medication. Have you considered trying a pharmacy other than CVS? It seems unusual to me that they wouldn't have it in stock, or get it in stock, if they know they have a regular customer that needs it. I know several pharmacy chains here in Washington that...

I have run out of my hydroxyzine n want to know side effects of that. ## Hello, Ramona! How are you? The FDA classifies this as an antihistamine that's used to treat allergic reactions, insomnia and for its sedative-like effects. Thus, as sudden withdrawal may cause you to experience nausea, insomnia and anxiety. Is there anything else I can help with?

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.

medications including hydroxyzine good for 5 years +

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 ...
