Both of these medications are used to treat anxiety. Hydroxyzine is actually an antihistamine while Xanax is a benzodiazepine. Very different drug categories. If you take Xanax regularly you can become dependent on it meaning you can't just stop it abruptly, but must be weaned off slowly to avoid serious withdrawal effects. Hydroxyzine is the "safest" to start with.
