Hydroxzine

Were you looking for information about Hydroxyzine? Hydroxzine is a common misspelling of hydroxyzine.
 
A healthcare provider may prescribe hydroxyzine (Atarax®, Vistaril®) to treat a variety of conditions, such as itching, anxiety, nausea, and vomiting. This prescription antihistamine is also useful in improving the effectiveness of opioid pain relievers. It comes in numerous strengths and forms, including tablets, capsules, syrup, oral suspension (liquid), and injections, and is typically taken two to four times a day.
 
Because this medication is not suitable for everyone, talk to your healthcare provider about any existing medical conditions you may have, such as glaucoma, difficulty passing urine, or heart disease, before taking hydroxyzine. In addition, tell your healthcare provider about all other drugs you are taking, including nonprescription medicines.
