i dont like that feeling at all but i have very bad anxiety
It's a first generation antihistamine but it's prescribed for a wide variety of conditions. It's been found to be very effective for anxiety for some people. It's not a benzodiazepine, which is the family of drugs commonly given for anxiety that's associated with that "high" feeling. If anything, you might feel a little drowsy from it, but you shouldn't experience any type of euphoria. I know it makes some people drowsy, but I've never experienced that when taking it. However, I take it for a completely different reason, which is for seasonal allergies. Seems to be one of the last antihistamines on the market that actually still work for my seasonal allergies!
No, only the first couple days you take it you might feel a little funny but that's with anything. Couple days go by and no problems. If you're worried about it take it when you're doing something active it won't be as bad or right before you go to sleep obviously, but you might wake up feeling weird
