I was prescribed Vistaril (hydroxyzine) to take as needed for anxiety. Can I also take Cetirizine HCl with it for my seasonal allergies?

In brief: 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.
