I am on 25mg twice a day of hydroxyzine pamoate for both anxiety and my allergies. The bottle says take twice a day so I take one after I wake up and then an other at night before bed. My prescription runs out before my next appointment with my doctor and it works so well, especially for my allergies that I don't want to have to go 2 months without it until my next appointment . Can I just cut back to one pill a day rather than 2? This way my prescription can last me twice as long.
If it is a 25mg tablet, you can cut it in half and take 1/2 in the am and 1/2 in the pm. If it is a capsule, it would be fine to only take one a day instead of 2. I would take it at bedtime if it were me, as it tends to make me drowsy. I take 10mg tablet at bedtime as needed for sleep.
