In brief: 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/.
