Hydroxyzine Expiration

My doctor gave me hydroxyzine pills on april 12th 2012, and I want to know if there safe to take again? ## HI, Nicky! How are you? Tablets begin to degrade once they are exposed to the elements, such as heat, light and moisture. This means that their time starts ticking away as soon as the seal on the original factory container is broken. From that point on, they have a one year expiration date and after that year, they being to lose effectiveness. Hydroxyzine isn't one that has been known to be dangerous once it's expired, but it's not going to continue working and having its intended beneficial effects. Thus, the best thing to do would be to properly dispose of them and see your doctor for a new prescription. Is there anything else I can help with? ## My hydroxyzine says u...

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.

Round dark green pill crescent moon 160

Round dark green pill with a crescent moon and 160 on it. Need to identify it. No other markings and is not scored. ## Hi Dede, From my investigation, the crescent moon is indicative of a product of Actavis Elizabeth, LLC. (now known as Teva Pharmaceuticals). There's also a round green Hydroxyzine 25mg pill by Epic Pharma, LLC. imprinted E 160, whereas the E is oval shaped like a moon. I'm fairly certain that if you took the pill to a local pharmacy for a second opinion that they'd be able to identify it as one of these prospects. However, you could also contact Actavis (Teva) directly for more specific details at: tevapharm.com/contact_us I hope this helps!

How long does it take to get Hydroxyzine out of your system?

How Long Does It Take To Get Hydroxyzine Out Of Your System? ## Hydroxyzine is an antihistamine, so it is not something that is tested for on drug tests, if that is what you are worried about. It can vary depending on the length of time you were taking it and the dosage, but it should be processed out of the body in approximately 24 to 48 hours. Are there any questions or comments? ## I'm shaking really bad and have spasms plus my skin is pealing. I have MS and am doing IV steroids but the hydroxy is causing these problems.

Green round 160 half moon

Never seen a pill this color I'm thinking its some type of designer pill since i can't find it and the source it came from. ## Hi Sloth, While I'm not exactly sure what pill you have there, I do know that Actavis Pharmaceuticals is known for putting a half moon logo on their tablets. That said, I'd probably encourage you to contact the manufacturer directly for more specific details on what this might be. NOTE: As of August 3rd 2016, Actavis has reportedly been acquired by Teva Pharmaceuticals, so any reference to Actavis is now a part of Teva; whom you can reach via email at [email protected] (for product information inquiries).

Hydroxyzine, Buspirone, Clonazepam and Diphenhydramine False Positive Drug Test

Hi everyone. My lawyer just called me and said I tested positive on my urine test. I take HYDROXYZINE PAM 50-100mg (for sleep), 15 MG 5 times a day of BUSPIRONE HCL, and CLONAZEPAM 1MG 3 times a day. I’ve never failed a drug test before. I have been taking zquil (alcohol free) for when I’m having a really hard time sleeping. This contains DIPHENHYDRAMINE HCI.

how long does it take for hydroxyzine to work

I have itching with no rash, Dr prescribed this rx yesterday and so far not much relief ## Hello, Karen! How are you?

Hydroxyzine False Positive Drug Test methadone

Since being prescribed hydroxyzine I falsely tested positive at my pain clinic for methadone. I also orally take oxycodone, lamictal, xanax, cymbalta, diphenhydramine, zantac, tums, and have an internal pain pump supplying me with dilaudid. Any clue? ## Update....I went back a week later as required and took the same test. Meanwhile th first "positive test" was sent to a lab for further testing. After taking the second test I was in the exam room waiting for the doctor and when he came in it was as if nothing happened. He wrote my script for a month and off I went. I am covinced they are simply bad tests that they recently started using but as a precaution I stopped taking the hydroxyzine.I don't know what kind of tests they are but if this happens to you stand up for yourse...
