I am 37 year old so can someone tell me about this pill will it help me
Hydroxyzine is used in the treatment of anxiety; pain; allergic urticaria; allergies; pruritus (and more), and belongs to the drug classes antihistamines, miscellaneous anxiolytics, sedatives and hypnotics.
Are you on any other medications such as blood pressure medicine? Is your anxiety under control now?
I started on it Spring of 2015. It raised my pulse too. My doctor happened to be out of town for two weeks. So I waited and within the two weeks my pulse rate went down. My pulse ran 180/75 or so, varying each day. But it slowly went back to the normal 120/75. Give it 2-3 weeks. I also take it for anxiety. Remember there are two kinds of hydroxyzine, I take hydroxyxine pamoate. Others on this site think the two are alike, they are not. I have petit mal epilepsy. The other hydroxyxine (the name of which I don't remember) IS different. My insurance did not want to pay for the hyrro.pamoate, but after I wrote to them explaining my need, the company now pays. I hope this will help. A high pulse is hard to ignore.
