Is atarax (hydroxyzine) right medicine ...for mosquito bite to my 7 months old baby .as she got six to seven red rashess. Kind of little swelling with pimple.
No, too strong: I think Atarax (hydroxyzine) is a bit too strong to use for bug bites in a baby. It can cause sedation. If the bites don't bother her, leave them alone and they will resolve on their own. If she is very itchy and uncomfortable, see your doctor to make sure it is bug bites before you medicate an infant. ...Read more

Itching, anxiety: Atarax (hydroxyzine, also sold as vistiril) is a sedating antihistamine. In addition to relieving anxiety, it can also help allergic itching, nausea, & motion sickness. It is non-addictive but can cause drowsiness & other (mostly minor) side-effects. See: http://www.Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pubmedhealth/pmh0000796/. ...Read more
Good sleep practices: 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. ...Read more

Benzos: Atarax is an antihistamine, not my first choice for anxiety, it will make you tired though. Xanax is a benzodiazepine, which is effective for a panic attack, but long term use can lead to dependence/tolerance and possible abuse, while not effectively treating the underlying anxiety disorder. SSRIs like paxil (paroxetine) and zoloft are much better for long term treatment of anxiety, as well as psychotherapy. ...Read more
Alcohol and sedative: I would wait 24 hours to be completely safe since xanax (alprazolam) can be deadly if mixed with or without alcohol.

You really should ask your pharmacist as well as your primary doctor who prescribed since doses also make a difference. ...Read more

Claritin (loratadine) Not Atarax: You may combine nyquil & claritin (loratadine). The latter is a non-sedating antihistamine. Nyquil contains a sedating antihistamine & Atarax is another. Liquid formulations of nyquil contain a lot of alcohol. So if a drunken stupor is your goal you'll achieve it with nyquil & atarax. There are better & safer ways to treat your allergies. Skin testing is more cost-effective than immunocap & equally accurate. ...Read more
