Is hydroxyzine safe to take daily? I use it for occasional panic attacks, but have been taking it daily for the last 3 weeks, due to stress.

In brief: Hydroxyzine

It is an antihistamine which may cause sedation, drowsiness, changes in blood pressure, dryness, exacerbate narrow angle glaucoma or urinary retention, may interact with other medications but in general is safe.
