do people use this drug on the streets?
Don't really think so as Vistaril is a prescription drug licensed for a variety of different uses. It is probably used most commonly as an antihistamine (for allergic reactions or itching reactions to opioids), as a nausea medication, and as a medicine to improve the effectiveness of opioid pain relievers.
However, please do double check it with a pharmacist, take care.
It is not physically addictive but any drug can cause a psychological dependence Rajive is correct that it is an antihistamine type drug. It is sometimes given also for sleep and anxiety issues because drowsiness is a prominent side effect. As to whether this is a drug on the streets? who knows? It could possibly be sold on the streets because it can enhance the effects of opioids. Almost anything that alters the state of consciousness can be misused. It is NOT subject to the Controlled Substances Act, however. The most valuable drugs on the streets are ones on the Controlled Substances list.
