FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: VISTARIL

User Comments:


For Anxiety “My doctor prescribed me vistaril to relieve anxiety rather than me just drinking alcohol and self medicating.It seems to take an edge of the anxiety but it doesn’t fully alleviate anxiety. Also after taking it for awhile I’m not 100 percent it was the vistaril but I developed what was explained to me to be chronic GERD basically like extreme heart burn all the time 24/7 so now they have me on more medication to treat that.”

For Anxiety “Vistaril does absolutely nothing. It doesn’t help with anxiety. It only makes you more frustrated that your anxiety is not being treated properly. If your doc prescribes you this, he is not a doctor, he is just wasting your time… unbelievable.”

For Anxiety “This didn’t do anything for my anxiety, not even make me tired. I feel more anxiety taking them then when I don’t use it. Chest tightness, nose running like a river, constant state of anxiety going on.”

For Anxiety “I have had anxiety and a panic disorder for most of my adult life. I was on ativan for 15 years and have been on klonopin for 10. When my doctor retires or I lose health insurance coverage I have been prescribed vistaril by family practice doctors that don’t like prescribing benzodiazepines. For me it does stop panic attacks and calms me. Also helps with sleeping. The only downside is it is less effective over time unlike klonopin or ativan which never loses its efficacy. It’s a nice med to take short term until I find a long term doctor.”

For Anxiety “I was prescribed Vistaril to help with anxiety and sleep following opiate withdrawals. It did little, if anything. Original dose was 50 mg, later raised to 100 mg. It did reduce the crazy sneezing I went through.I got far better results for sleep from OTC Benedryl and melatonin.”
