Been on Hydroxyzine for a month now with AMAZING results on both anxiety and allergies, is it safe to use this drug long term?

Been on Hydroxyzine for a month now with AMAZING results on both anxiety and allergies, is it safe to use this drug long term?

Yes, but: Hydroxyzine has very little usefulness for Anxiety in the long term. It is primarily an allergy medicine. It is usually prescribed for short term use--and not at all recommended for Anxiety, but it has a following of folks who use it. Best to look into some therapy and working on your anxiety rather than relying on a phenothiazine and anti-histamine for your issues. Best to solve your issues. ...Read more

I take hydroxyZine at night for sleep/allergies. I just had dental work and was given loratb. Can I take 3 hours apart from one another?

Better not: Lortab contains codeine, which can be potentiated by hydroxyzine and lead to untoward effect as CNS depression and severe constipation for example, so you don't want that, even if you space them, either stay in your system long enough, hydroxyzine stays longer, please hold hydroxyzine till done with lortab, good that you asked, always exercise caution with multiple medications, wish you wellness ...Read more

Vistaril (hydroxyzine): Vistaril (hydroxyzine) becomes zyrtec after going through the liver but it is less drowsy-producing. The range of dosing on vistaril (hydroxyzine) is huge ranging from 10 mg to 100 mg depending on the individual. ...Read more

I was given Loratadine by an ENT doc for allergies & Hydroxyzine for anxiety. Can I take both at same time or just one?

I was given Loratadine by an ENT doc for allergies & Hydroxyzine for anxiety. Can I take both at same time or just one?

Yes you can: But better hydroxyzine at night and loratadine in the morning. Don't exceed prescribed dosages, and keep the follow up with your doctors. Loratadine should be non sedating, however, in some it can cause sedation, so if that happens be cautious, and tell your doctor about it, as hydroxyzine is sedating too. Don't advance dosage of either on your own, best wishes ...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?

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

Generalized itching for five months. No rash, normal blood work no allergies found. Zyrtec. Benadryl, (diphenhydramine) and hydroxyzine don't work what's wrong with me?

Generalized itching for five months. No rash, normal blood work no allergies found. Zyrtec. Benadryl, (diphenhydramine) and hydroxyzine don't work what's wrong with me?

Very difficult: You omitted details. Exactly which blood tests? May be serious. Best see a dermatologist. Never due to laundry products. Not due to food. Only sedation or placebo effect with any antihistamine. Severe, generalized itch with no rash is very difficult to define or treat. Sometimes we find an underlying disease which needs attention. You need a professional, not a DR without experience with this. ...Read more
