I am 28 years old I thought I was having a heart attack a couple weeks back went to the er they said my heart was fine... I went to the doctor last week and they put me on hydroxyzine 25mg 3 times a day for anxiety. I have been taking it for a week today and the anxiety seems 2 be better I dont think as much about being scared of my health like I was but it does seem to have side effects I take 1 when I wake up and it makes me kinda drowsy and weak throughout the day then I take 1 in the afternoon and 1 before bed it makes me really bloated all the time and gives me headaches and diziness at times and also my arm gets random pain and numbness I was jusy wondering if this is normal and if so how longs it take to get use to the medicine
Hi jswindle86.Some of your symptoms are side effects, but they are also anxiety symptoms. I too have been to the er.way to many times for anxiety attacks.If it were me I'd only take the meds at night or when u feel the symptoms coming on.it takes weeks for some people to get use to the med.i take ativan and I'm trying to get off the meds and get the anxiety under control. I hope u r feeling better.
