My Atarax 25mg expired in 2010

I used to take atarax 25mg for depression in 2010. It got better so I stopped taking them. It's now 2017 and my doctor put me back on them. I got a new prescription for the same milligrams but I found my other atarax in the kitchen cabinet. I'm wondering if it's still any good before I throw them away? ## Most likely not, medications tend to lose efficacy with time, according to FDA warnings. Even stored in the original factory sealed containers, they are usually only good for about 4 to 5 years, less when they are in a bottle as dispensed by your pharmacy, since that exposes them to the elements that cause degradation, such as heat, light, and moisture. Thus, it would be better to dispose of them, and pick up the new prescription. Is there anything else I can help with?

Switching from Xanax to Atarax

Sure hope I can get some help here. I've been on 2 mg. Xanax for years, well over 8 years. My doctor called me last week and told me as of January 1st, Xanax, Valium, believe she said all Benzos will no longer be around! I did some research on this and saw where some States are doing this but did not see North Carolina (where I am), listed, of course I'm not through checking into this as it does take awhile, so thought instead, I'd come here and see what, if anything, anyone else has heard. I've been with this doctor for a little over 15 years so don't think she'd lie to me. She wants to give me, "Atarax" staring in January. What I've read of it, in other forums, most said it did not help their, Anxiety and Panic Attacks (I have both), plus it gave so...

saboxone and atarax
