I was prescribed hydroxyzine for panick attack relief. I am very sensitive to meds and side effects. So I was wondering if the sedation is less with a smaller dose
I only take it at bedtime to help me to sleep on nights when I am having a hard time going to sleep or when I have had a particularly stressful day. I was prescribed 10 mgs., one or two tablets at bedtime. It helps me sleep through the night, and it doesn't give me that "hangover" drowsy feeling the next day. It helps with my anxiety. I have taken buspar during the day to prevent panic attacks and/or treat anxiety. It doesn't make me drowsy at low doses.

Does anyone else get very vivid dreams that wake them up in a panic from hydroxyzine? I only take 5?
