Atarax - To control anxiety, nervousness, ect. My regular Dr. prescribed it to me on Friday and said to use that until my psych changes my meds, in addition to zoloft and trazodone. I don't see my psych until the end of the month. Any possitive input is welcome...
Hi! I had really bad anxiety and the clinic I that I go to stop using Xanax and put me on Atarax first, sorry to say but this did nothing but make me have more anxiety. They gave me different antihistimines with in the same family of Atarax and they also did nothing. I hope it is different for you though and that it does help. I know how bad it is to get anxiety and to have to deal with the wait of seeing your pysch. Good Luck.
is a piperazine derivative that is used as an antihistamine (especially for itches), anti-emetic (nausea reducing), and anxiolytic (anxiety reducing) drug. It can also be used as an adjunct to pre- and post-operative medication and it also possesses a weak analgesic effect. Hydroxyzine is sold under brand names such as Atarax,
The side effects of hydroxyzine are usually mild, and include drowsiness and dry mouth, which is due to slight anticholinergic action. In rare cases muscle tremor and convulsions may occur.
Hi, for me it gave a reverse side effect and made me more anxious. like that other poster happen too. So it all depends on your body. My regular doctor is the one that prescibed it too to me and kept increasing it I remember cause I couldn't sleep well it made me worse and I didn't know what to do. With ativan I have the same problem.
