Vistaril Dosage For Sleep
Taking Vistaril (hydroxyzine) 25 mg @ night for month. Suppose to help with sleep & anxiety but one of my doctors said it only has a shelf life of 4 hrs???
Half-life?: I wonder if your doctor was referring to Vistaril (hydroxyzine)'s "half-life"? That's the time it takes the body to reduce it to half it's "potency, " and 3-4 hours is about right for Vistaril (hydroxyzine). The advantage of Vistaril (hydroxyzine) is that it acts within about 30 min, is not a high risk for dependency, and is especially good in helping people get to sleep. If staying asleep becomes an issue, other medicines may help.
23 old male, 6"2', 150lbs, no allergies. Seem naturally very tolerant to combining lunesta (eszopiclone) 3mg, Ambien 5mg, and vistaril 100mg to sleep. Suggestions?
Stop the meds: Lunesta/ambien and vistaril not working? You need to wean off these meds and see a sleep specialist. You can try Restoril (temazepam) or trazadone or neurontin, but I doubt it. You should consider seroquel or zyprexa as you may have bipolar disorder, esp if you cannot shut your mind off at night.
What are other medicine that are powerful like seroquel (quetiapine) that help sleep? I take 200mg seroquel (quetiapine) I gained massive weight I've tried trazadone vistaril
Need a sleep study: First of all, have you had a sleep study? If not, that is the first step.
I am taking 100 mg of Vistaril (hydroxyzine) for sleep. I have a constant salty taste in my mouth. Could this be caused by the Vistaril (hydroxyzine)? Thank you.
Can vistaril (hydroxyzine) cause slight quivering in the lips? I took four tabs (25mg) yesterday. Wasn't able to sleep it all off now I'm tired and my face quivers.
I take vistaril lexapro (escitalopram) for sleep when I took both next day mouth felt dry weird can't feel much on the inside in my mouth which med causes this?
Both: Both Vistaril and Lexapro (escitalopram) independepent of each other can cause dry mouth as a side effect. Taken together potentially increases the severity. It appears you also are on Seroquel, which also commonly causes dry mouth. Over time this may diminish as your system acclimates to the medications. Discuss with your doctor if this does not improve and/or worsens. Hope this is helpful. All the best.
Don't know if anxiety is my issue. Can't sleep. Tried ambien, (zolpidem) remeron, vistaril nothing puts me out. Heart races. Why? Love life, very happy.?
Sleep assessment: You need to rule out medical causes of sleep disruption if these sleep medications are not helping. For example, you may have an underlying sleep apnea or even a silent form of asthma, both of which can disrupt your breathing during sleeo and awaken you. Or you may have an underlying psychological condition affecting your sleep. Make an appointment with a neurologist who specializes in sleep probs.See 1 more doctor answer
Lunesta (eszopiclone) 3mg, Ambien 5mg, and vistaril 100mg before bed. Think I should be asleep fast, but it's been 1 hr. Can I eat now or will that alter effects?
See your doctor: This problem can only be solved by seeing your doctor and being evaluated face-to-face. After a thorough examination, your doctor should be able to tell you what's wrong and what to do about it.
I'm taking vistaril its not making fall asleep what's a appetite suppressant to take with seroquel (quetiapine)? Adipex increased heart my heart rate
Talk with your doc: Please discuss your concerns about weight gain with your physician. Appetite suppressants are temporary at best, and health-endangering at worst. What will help you more is an ongoing physical exercise and healthy food plan. Your doctor can suggest ideas -- nutritionists and trainers can help you also. Please stay away from appetite suppressants, especially with the history you describe.
Is there a serious contraindication with taking Hydroxyzine Hydroxyzine Hydrochloride (as sleep aid) alongside Escitalopram (for GAD)?
No: They can be taken together. I hope it helps you sleep.
My medication dosages were upped 24 hours ago and I have had a migraine ever since. Can these medications be causing it? Wellbutrin 100mg->150mg Abilify 5mg->15mg Vistaril 10mg->25mg
Side effects: Headache is a reported side effect of all of these medications. Suggest informing your prescribing doctor about your headache. You and your doctor can discuss a plan to address the problem.
Average 25: Average oral or IM dose in 25-50 mg could repeated every six hours not to exceed 200 mg in 24 hours IV dose is different the safest is 12.5 mg administered by health professional while the patient is monitored I hope that answer your question good luck
I was urged not to take zyrtec for allergies since I'm already taking vistaril (hydroxyzine) as needed. What dose vistaril (hydroxyzine) is effective for allergies?
Max 400mg/day in adu: Although max dose of vistaril (hydroxyzine) is 400mg/day in adults, every one is different. Some common side effects are drowsiness, fatigue headache constipation. Report any irregular/fast heart beat, difficulty urinating, slurred speech or tremor to your doctor as soon as possible. Vistaril (hydroxyzine) starts it action in 15-60 mins after a dose / keeps working for~4-6hrs then out of the system 14-25 hrs. Drink lots water.
