Just starting taking this medication and the fort day it gave me a lot of energy and then it felt like my body crashed in the afternoon. It did keep me calm so now I am not aura when to take it. Any information would be appreciated.
One of the unique things about hydroxyzine is that it can be taken on an as needed basis.
Like all prescription medications, hydroxyzine should be taken only as your health care provider prescribes it, so be sure to follow the instructions on your prescription. The typical adult dosage is 50 mg to 100 mg up to 4 times daily, with or without food.
I take Hydroxyzine 50mg also, I take it for anxiety, irritability issues, and other things, but I would definitely recommend, if it does to me, what it might do to you, is take it at night, because it makes me anyway, very sleepy, it is a sedative for your brain, and it could, but everybody's body is different, it could make you sleepy also, so I would recommend, and I'm not a doctor, just a retired paramedic, you should actually take it when you're doctor says to, you should ask them first, but I would recommend at night, hope this helps some.
I take 50mg at night, the next day I wake up fine. I couldn't take this during the day I would be too sleepy.
