Every 4 -6 hours: The usual dose of Atarax is 25 mg every 6 hours. You can increase to 50mg, and take as often as every 4 hours, but the side effects of drowsiness and dry mouth are more severe at higher doses. The generic name of Atarax is hydroxyzine, which is also available as vistaril.

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.
