Hydroxyzine Drug Information

Hydroxyzine (Atarax®, Vistaril®) is a drug approved for several uses, such as itching and improving the effectiveness of opioid pain relievers. However, because this medicine is not suitable for everyone, make sure to review the prescribing drug information on hydroxyzine before starting treatment.
 
For example, you may not be able to take hydroxyzine if you have certain medical conditions, such as glaucoma, heart disease, or Alzheimer's disease. Also, you may not be able to safely use it if you are currently taking certain medications, including some vitamins, herbal supplements, and nonprescription medicines.
 
While most people do not experience problems with this drug, hydroxyzine can cause side effects. Some of the most commonly reported ones include drowsiness, dry mouth, and headaches. This medication comes in several forms, including tablets, capsules, syrup, oral suspension (liquid), and injections. It is typically taken two to four times a day.
