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.

need help is it ok to take vistaril busbars and suboxone
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
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?

vistaril and pregnancy
Is vista often prescribed to pregnant women to relax them or make them sleep? Does this drug affect the fetus? ## My daughter was prescribed visteral for her morning sickness and then saw that it said not to take if pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant. I also saw an article that said it would harm an unborn fetus. but her doctor says it is alright. this is very confusing and we are afraid it may hurt her unborn baby?? ## Precautionary guidelines for Vistaril (hydroxyzine) note the following: tell your doctor if you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding.

PLEASE HELP E613 Vistaril PILL
!!!EMERGENCY!!! Will it help with a toothache. I have one really bad and i have nothing else but the E613 Vistaril pill. ## Hi Tiffany, I'm sorry to hear about your pain from the tooth ache. The "E613" imprint on a green capsule is identified as Hydroxyzine pamoate (25 mg). This is most commonly used in the treatment of anxiety, pain, nausea/vomiting, and sedation.
