Myriad uses: For allergic noses & eyes - Atarax (hydroxyzine) treats symptoms of itching, sniffing, sneezing, & dripping. Its not very good for stuffy nose. Atarax helps make hives go away. If you take it everyday it will help keep them from breaking out. Atarax is also an excellent medication if you have imsomnia. It makes you sleepy & you fall asleep. When Atarax is absorbed your body converts into zyrtec!
