Vistaril 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. Due to its antagonistic effects on several receptor systems in the brain, hydroxyzine is claimed to have strong anxiolytic and mild antiobsessive as well as antipsychotic properties.[3] Today it is...

Safety of expired drugs & general efficacy of drugs

How safe are the following drugs if expired, and is their general efficacy compromised as well? Vistaril Xanax Flexiril Excedrin Migraine Tylenol with Codeine Ear drops ## Hello, Brad! How are you? In tablet form, none of the medications you've listed become dangerous, once expired, but yes, they do start to lose efficacy and you should dispose of them. The expired liquid ear drops, however, can go bad and could cause problems, if you used them, as listed by the FDA. Liquids are nowhere near as stable as other medication forms. Both Xanax and Codeine carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

need help is it ok to take vistaril busbars and suboxone
1 Reply RSS
My mental health nurse practitioner prescribed me 30mg twice a day of buspars,vistaril 25mg 3 times a day and I go to a suboxone clinic 2 strips a day I need to know if it's deadly or not the nurse knows I take the suboxone I'm just worried ?!?!? ## Hello, Kyman! How are you? The only possible interaction that I've found is due to the fact that both the Vistaril and the Suboxone can increase sedation, so you do need to be aware of that and keep an eye out for any danger signs, such as extreme sedation, severe dizziness and shallow breathing. Suboxone is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

OVER THE COUNTER MEDICINE
2 Replies RSS
Is there a over the counter medicine for vistaril ## Hello, BJ! How are you? No, the closest you could get would most likely be Benadryl, which contains the active ingredient Diphenhydramine. It's an excellent antihistamine and usually the first choice used in most ERs to treat allergic reactions, but it doesn't have the same potent sedating effects that Vistaril does. If you need to switch, please check the safety of doing so with your doctor. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I am allergic to diphenhydromene. would this be suffice?
