No, Atarax, also known as Vistaril, is not a narcotic. Atarax is antihistamine, similar to and in the same family as Benadryl (Diphenhydramine). So, it is not addictive. Atarax is being used increasingly to treat anxiety also used to stop itching. I have, also, seen it being utilized, for persons who are medically detoxing from Alcohol. Hope this helps.
