Hi, my name is Amber and I am 24 almost 25, married, and a mother to a VERY sick son. I had him prematurely and he has several health conditions and some are actually unknown. I cannot juggle my life and have panic and anxiety attacks frequently, even to the point of fainting. I went to the hospital they gave me Ativan, which worked but isnt an everyday medication. I ran out of Ativans and am back again with my panic and anxiety attacks full force. I went to the clinic today since I do not have insurance and they gave me Vistaril (Hydroxyz PAM, 25mg 3x daily). I guess what my question is if I am having problems sleeping all the time as is then why would this medicine be prescribed? The doctor was well aware of that and I cannot get a hold of her until tomorrow. Also 3 x daily for anxiety - is that normal to take a medicine used for anxiety that many times a day? Please let me know any experiences on this medicine and any other input is welcome! Thanks.
