Hi there. For those of you in chronic pain and anxiety, what is your dose and how many times do you take it per day? If you take it 4 times a day or every 8 hours? Stuff like that. Thanks everyone!
Gypsy; it is pretty common to be able to take 25mg every 4 to 6 hours but make sure your doctor is okay with that and it does make sense about it helping with the itching and the pain. this has many different uses. but check with your doctor as with anything the less the better but I normally take 1 every 6 to 8 hours and if I need it one at bedtime.

At first, I took it a few times a day to alleviate the anxiety and pain in my knees when I was starting Bupropion SR, which I have taken in the past. It allowed me to sleep through the night. I took hydroxyzine along with buspar to counteract the anxiety. I also have joint and muscle pain, and my pain level is much lower now. I only take the hydroxyzine at bedtime now, though, as I don't need it during the day. It is a good medication. "G"
