I have a 7 day supply I just got last week. Are the 25mg meant to treat the itch from an allergic reaction only or is it meant to make my sleep better?
I think this will answer your question:
"Hydroxyzine is an antihistamine that reduces the effects of natural chemical histamine in the body. Histamine can produce symptoms of itching, or hives on the skin. Hydroxyzine may be used to treat allergic skin reactions such as hives or contact dermatitis.
Since hydroxyzine also reduces activity in the central nervous system, it can be used as a sedative to treat anxiety and tension. It is also used together with other medications given during and after general anesthesia."
