What Is The Purpose Of Taking Hydroxyzine Pam Cap 25mg And Buspirone Tab 15mg Together

Barb Higdon Says:

I am taking Busprione Tab 15 MG and Hydroxyzine Caps 25 MG for depression and anxiety. What is the purpose of taking both of these medications? It seems like Hydroxyzine makes me tired. I use to take Xanax and I never felt tired as a matter of fact I had much more energy.
Please let me know what these two perscriptions and suppose to help me do. I'm still depressed.

The Hydroxyzine is an antihistamine that is also often used for it's calming/sedative like effects to relieve anxiety, so it's causing drowsiness is a normal side effect.

Buspirone is an anti-anxiety medication and being that this calming is the very intent of it, it can also cause drowsiness.

Generally, when someone suffers anxiety, it involves their getting worked up, so calming is necessary to help balance the person back out.

However, neither one of these is an antidepressant and what may be happening is that they may be bringing you down too far and contributing to the depression.

Have you talked to your doctor about this?
