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

Can I take nyquil at night when I'm also taking Claritin (loratadine) and atarax?

Can I take nyquil at night when I'm also taking Claritin (loratadine) and atarax?

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.
