Dr. Vasu K. Brown answered:

Is Atarax addictive?

No

Addiction
Even though it is an effective sedative, hypnotic, analgesic, and tranquilizer, it shares almost none of the abuse, dependence, addiction, and toxicity potential of other drugs used for the same range of therapeutic reasons.

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.

Dr. Evan M. Altman answered:

Is atarax effective for sleep?

Good sleep practices

Open-uri20131017-18156-iojyh2
Atarax/hydroxyzine is a prescription antihistamine/anti-allergy medication. Because it can be sedating, some people find it helpful for insomnia, at least in the short term. It is not a controlled or addictive medication like some sleep aids. Be sure to practice sleep hygiene -- structuring your sleep, avoid lying long periods not sleeping, avoid daytime napping, use bed only for sleep/intimacy.
