FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: HYDROXYZINE, HYDROXYZINE HYDROCHLORIDE

User Comments:


For Allergic Urticaria: “Periodically I get hives. This time I was prescribed the standard prednisone pack and Hydroxyzine. I took the prednisone but not the antihistamine. Dumb me. The rash got better but the back of my head began to itch terribly. As a result large welts began to form. My hands itched and other welts on my legs and chest began to form. So, I decided to take my hydroxyzine. I took it right before bed. When I woke up all the welts were nearly all gone. My hands stopped itching. This drug works wonders. Yes, it made me a little sleepy. Who cares. It knocked my hives out like a heavyweight boxer.”

For Anxiety: “My doctor is taking me off xanex after being on it for a year. He prescribed me 10 mg of this drug. The worst experience ever it’s been hours and I feel nausea headache and so dizzy I can’t stand too long. Heart murmurs heaviness in my chest. Blurred vision so bad I feel cross eyed. Never taking it ever again!”

For Anxiety: “My dr gave me this as he doesn’t like Xanax because it can become addicting. It did nothing for me. If anything, I think it made my anxiety attacks worse. He did say that it helps some people but not everyone and I agreed to try it. I threw them out”

For Anxiety: “I have been taking 25mg hydroxizine for the past nine months. The impact has been positive and has given me more control over my actions during situations of anxiety and panic due to a specific phobia. Originally the medication made me extremely drowsy, but this wore off after a few weeks. The medication has also helped with sleeping and allergies, which have in turn improved my mood and decreased my anxiety. It may not work for everyone, but it’s worth a try.”
