Frequently asked questions about hydroxyzine hydrochloride

What is hydroxyzine hydrochloride?

Hydroxyzine hydrochloride - generic for the brand name Atarax - is a prescription medication used to treat the symptoms of anxiety and tension in both children and adults. Hydroxyzine hydrochloride may also be prescribed to ease the itching from an allergic reaction. In some cases, it can be administered along with other drugs as a sedative before and after surgery, to help ease tension and reduce the risk of nausea and vomiting after the procedure.

Even though hydroxyzine hydrochloride is considered an antihistamine (anti-allergy), its effect on serotonin can help make you feel sleepy and calm. The long-term efficacy of hydroxyzine hydrochloride as a treatment for anxiety is unclear, but it can help improve mood and decrease tension within a four-month span.

What is hydroxyzine hydrochloride used to treat?

Hydroxyzine hydrochloride is an antihistamine used to treat allergies. Because of its sedative properties, it can help relax a patient prior to surgery. Post-surgery, it may be administered to reduce the risk of nausea and vomiting.

Hydroxyzine hydrochloride is also used to treat anxiety disorders, such as panic disorder, with or without agoraphobia, and anxiety caused by other psychological problems. It works by affecting certain neurotransmitters in the brain that help to reduce anxiety.

How does hydroxyzine hydrochloride work?

Hydroxyzine hydrochloride belongs to a class of drugs known as antihistamines. It works by blocking the effects of histamine, a substance that your body naturally produces. Histamine can produce symptoms of itching or a runny nose, and other symptoms of allergies. If you are allergic to something, your body produces more histamine, which causes your nasal passages to become stuffy, and your eyes to become itchy and watery. Hydroxyzine is primarily prescribed to treat itching (pruritis) related to allergic reactions.

Hydroxyzine hydrochloride also suppresses certain areas of the central nervous system, which can help improve mood and reduce symptoms of anxiety. These effects have been shown to effectively treat anxiety and anxiety-related insomnia.

What are the most common side effects of hydroxyzine hydrochloride?

While there are some side effects associated with hydroxyzine, it is important to remember that your doctor prescribed this drug because they believe that its benefits outweigh any adverse effects it may cause.

You may, however, experience some mild side effects while taking hydroxyzine hydrochloride. Hydroxyzine hydrochloride is considered a safe and effective treatment for several conditions including symptoms of allergic reaction, post-surgery nausea, and anxiety. These side effects are generally mild. Common side effects include:

Dry mouth Drowsiness Hallucination (primarily in older adults) Headache

In some cases, hydroxyzine hydrochloride may result in more serious side effects. If the symptoms above persist, or if you experience more severe side effects, call your doctor right away. Some rare but serious side effects of hydroxyzine include:

Allergic reaction Tremors & convulsions Difficulty breathing

This is not a complete list of side effects of hydroxyzine hydrochloride. To learn more about the side effects you may experience, please visit the National Institutes of Health’s DailyMed page on hydroxyzine.

How long does it take for hydroxyzine hydrochloride to work?

Hydroxyzine hydrochloride is absorbed in the body very quickly, and you will start to feel its effects within 30 minutes. It will reach its full effectiveness within 1-2 hours after it is taken. It should be noted that because it is fast-acting, its side effects (like drowsiness) are fast-acting too.

What is the typical starting dose of hydroxyzine hydrochloride?

Hydroxyzine hydrochloride may be prescribed as a 10, 20, or 50 mg dose. When used to treat anxiety in adults and children over the age of 6, doctors often prescribe daily doses of 50 to 100 mg of hydroxyzine. For itching and allergies, doctors prescribe adults daily doses of 25 mg, and children daily doses of 50 to 100 mg. Hydroxyzine hydrochloride is often taken in divided doses over the course of the day. As a sedative for surgery and post-operation recovery, doctors usually prescribe a 50 to 100 mg dose.

As with many medications, your doctor may adjust your dosage based on your body’s response to hydroxyzine hydrochloride.

You should also be sure to tell your doctor about any medications that you are currently taking, and any health conditions you may have. Hydroxyzine hydrochloride may interact with other medications, leading to adverse reactions.
