Safe to split the beige 25mg hydroxyzine HCL tablet with 276 on one side and IG? For health related anxiety. Any side effect? Enough for Sx abatement?
Risk/warnings for heart or anything else for taking short term Hydroxyzine HCL 25mg for health related anxiety? Only as needed, how long can I take?
Potential: The FDA has recently issued warning on the potential cardiovascular side effects from hydroxyzine. If you have no cardiac problem and a normal EKG, I think the risk is very very low. But if you do have a history of cardiovascular disease especially with a rhythm disorder, best to check with your doctor first. ...Read more
Is it safe to take hydrocodone and hydroxyzine HCl together medically? What would be effective dosages for treating severe pain and anxiety? Thanks.
Pain and Anxiety : Why are you taking these medications ? What is the nature of your pain ? We some times use Hydrocodone and hydroxy zone to make the Hydrocodone more effective . The dose of Hydrocodone depends on your size and severity of your pain . This is best left to the prescribing doctor who knows the nature of your pain . Hydroxyzine is not really a good drug for anxiety because of its sedation side effect ...Read more
I was prescribed Vistaril (hydroxyzine) to take as needed for anxiety. Can I also take Cetirizine HCl with it for my seasonal allergies?
Not best combo: Can make u drowsy. Likely got prescribed vistaril (hydroxyzine) as it also helps with allergies/itching. Bug there are too many other medications more effective than vistaril (hydroxyzine). I also suggest u see a clinical psychologist or License Clinical Social Worker for the anxiety. Look into Cognitive Behavioral Therapy=CBT. ...Read more
Either/or Hydroxyzine HCL or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for getting through medicine induced hyperthyroid anxiety? (Off all thyroid meds, taking low dose propranolol)
I take 30mg of adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) XR but I am breaking out in hives due to anxiety. Is it safe to take hydroxyzine hcl 25 mg?
Anxiety driven hives: Hydroxyzine is a reasonable intervention given that it works fairly well for anxiety. There are no known drug-drug interactions between Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and hydroxyzine (Vistaril/Atarax). But if you find sedation from hydroxyzine to be a problem, you may consider trying cetirizine (Zyrtec). It shouldn't have the calming effect of hydroxyzine but may treat the hives all the same. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I accidentally doubled my 2 y/o dose of hydroxyzine HCl 10mg/5ml. Gave him 5ml instead of 2.5. Will he be ok?
He'll be fine: A one time dose at that level is not anything to be worried about. You wouldn't want to do it every day, but this is a very safe medicine, and other than he may be a bit drowsy tonight, it isn't going to be a problem. Have a good evening and don't worry about it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Probably ok: But both possess sedating property and you need to be certain about your alertness before you go out driving . ...Read more
You would be sleepy: Hydroxyzine HCl when marketed as Atarax was studied in patients with chronic urticaria at gradually increasing doses up to 100 mg every 6 hours. I've used it at single night doses of 400 mg in severe urticaria. Hydroxyzine Pamoate(Vistaril) was used as a mild antidepressant at higher doses. I would not recommend that you use 750 mg intentionally since there are better less sedating antihistamines. ...Read more
Just a little: The active ingredient, hydroxyzine is the same in both formualtions, though the salt, pamoate or hydrochloride (hcl), to which it is attached is different. The pamoate comes as a capsule and the hydrochloride is a tablet. The release mechanism into the body is different between the two and therefore one may work better than the other for certain individuals. ...Read more
Yes: But do realize that both have sedating effect and thus the result is additive. ...Read more
