I recently went through an alcohol detox program and was given a prescription for Hydroxyzine Pam., 25 mg, up to 4X a day. Have only been on it for a few days now and so far, have found it to be helpful for the initial anxiety associated with withdrawal. Am only taking it in the evenings and before bed. After reading the other reviews, it appears this drug has been mainly prescribed for general & social anxiety and sleep disorders. I would be interested in knowing if this a common treatment for recovering alcoholics and what others have experienced with long term use for this purpose.
