Hydroxylzine is the generic name for Atarax or vistaril, it is an antihistamine, kinda like Benadryl on steroids. It has anxiolytic properties and I used to take it for sleep. It's been around since before the earth's crust cooled. And quite effective.

I have recently been put onHydroxyzine I take 25mg then 45 minutes later if I need it I take another 25mg at bedtime. After the second dose it usally takes me 10 minutes or less to fall asleep. I can't say I see a change in my anxiety though. My psy. Doc says she likes this instead of benzo's so I told her I was willing to give it a try. The only side effect I seem to have is craving sweets. Are you taking during the day or just at bedtime?
