My dr. prescribed hydroxyzine to help me sleep. first off it is giving me really weird dreams and I already think I am going to stop taking it. my question is I have been feeling very drowsy especially early in the morning until afternoon. I am taking 50 mg just before I go to bed around 10 or 11 pm. could this drug be causing the drowsiness for that long after I have taken it? it isnt as bad as the affect it has right after I take it where in 20 mins my eyes just slowly start to close, but instead I can be awake for about an hour or 2 and then start to feel drowsy again.
I am not taking anything else that may be causing this and seems that it started when I began taking it. only other drugs I am taking are welbutrin (bupropion), clorazepate (I know it can cause drowsiness but this happens before I take clorazepate as I only take it if necessary.) and ibuprofen 600 mg.
I am not sure why else I would be drowsy in the mornings like this other than because of this drug and was wondering if anyone else had been prescribed this for sleep and had the same side affect.
