Hydroxyzine: For as long as the medication is prescribed for what it is supposed to treat. If you have concerns, you really should bring them up to the prescribing doctor, since they know what they are treating you for.

Not so much: If you're looking for a medication to slow your machinery down, don't self-medicate with something that can be a troublesome as "atarax" / hydroxyzine. Your physician might offer a very low dose of a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor. Especially, work with your partner on "edging" and on the "squeeze technique" -- you'll reprogram yourself and bring each other to new heights. Best wishes.

Atarax (hydroxyzine) & Nyquil: Can't see reason to combine both. If you have to, take Atarax (hydroxyzine) in daytime & nyquil at bedtime.
