In brief: As prescribed, and

don't switch them, usually the xanax is taken before bedtime, and the vistaril only as needed as prescribed, please refer to your presciber, and don't switch or change the schedule, the combination can potentially have side effects, your are on minimal doses, keep your follow up, call your doctor soon for any problem or if you don't feel any improvement, best wishes
