Are these drugs about the same
Hi JFR... Hydroxyzine is, as Laurie said, an antihistamine... a very old one also called Vistaril and atarax. It is used for severe itching. It is one of the old type antihistamines which cross the blood brain barrier which means that it will make you sleepy. As Laurie said hydrocodone and hydroxyzine are two completely different drugs. When hydroxyzine is used with hydrocodone it potentiates (makes stronger) it's effects. I would not recommend using these two drugs together. Did someone prescribe either one or both of these drugs for you? Hope this helps...
