... 150mg a day
It's actually an antihistamine and an old one at that. As is typical with antihistamines, common side effects include all of the ones you're experiencing.
Maybe a lower dose or a different medication is a good idea. You can check with your doctor for other medication ideas. If you prefer not taking benzodiazepines (like Xanax, Klonopin, etc) there are tons of antihistamines you can still try (atarax is what I took while pregnant and it worked well, but there are more) or you could try an antidepressant that treats anxiety like Paxil, Wellbutrin or one of the very old ones like Trazadone. There are so many options hopefully you can find a good medication regimen soon!
