Hydroxyzine Overview

Hydroxyzine, sold under the brand names Atarax and Vistaril among others, is a first-generation antihistamine. It was first synthesized by Union Chimique Belge in 1956 and was marketed by Pfizer in the United States later the same year,[3] and is still widely used today.

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 USMedInfo@tevapharm.com (for product information inquiries). Whereabouts did you get it from? ## I am having the same problem identifying this pill. Have you had any luck? ## Hydroxyzine 25mg... Cla...

How Many Hydroxyzine 25 Mg Do I Take To Equal 2 Xanax
12 Replies RSS
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.

hydroxyzine pam 50mg what is the highest dose
2 Replies RSS
I want to know what is the highest does for person to take ## Hi minime, I'm unsure of the absolute maximum dosage, but I believe the normal adult dosage is 50- 100 (mg) which can be taken up to 4 times a day. You should take this medication by mouth with or without food, just follow whatever instructions your doctor has provided. I'm not sure if you are using the liquid form of this medication, but if so, be sure to carefully measure the dose by using a special measuring device/spoon. Using a household spoon is not recommended because you may not get the correct dose. The dosage is on a case by case basis and is determined by a number of factors including your age, medical condition, and how well you respond to the treatment. You can learn more about this drug on the page for H...

Hydroxyzine for Panic Attacks?
2 Replies RSS
Yesterday, I was prescribed hydroxyzine/Atarax, a drug sometimes used as an anticholinergergic (antihistamine) medicine but can also used for fast-acting relief of panic attacks. I am on currently prescribed Klonopin 2mg 3x a day for generalized anxiety and debilitating panic attacks, along with Fetzima, a SNRI that I recently started a week and 3 days ago. Prior to that, I was on Pristiq for 3 months and that did nothing for my depression but make it worse, and before that I was on Effexor XR, which for a decade because it was the only anti-depressant that didn't cause terrible side-effects and weight gain. However, over the last two year, Effexor started making me worse than better in terms of my depression. These meds are prescribed by Psychiatric NP, for major depression and Sea...
