Just wondering if this actually works for anxiety - my doctor prescribed it and told me to take it at night, but I see other places where people take it throughout the day to manage their anxiety... which is really how I would like to take it, too. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you!
Vistaril (hydroxyzine) is an antihistamine. It does help with anxiety and tension as it acts like a sedative. It will make you sleepy so I guess that is why doc said to take at night. I wouldn't start taking during the day until you see how you respond and discuss with the doctor.
