In reply to VISTARIL (HYDROXYZ PAM 25MG), posted by Amber_MB on March 27, 2007, at 18:06:17

Vistaril is certainly used for anxiety, although its primary use these days is as an antihistamine. You could call it a dual-action drug. The antihistamine effect does make it powerfully sedating in some people (although paradoxical stimulation can also occur). Be prepared for the possibility that you might be very sedated, at least at first.

It is normal to take this drug three times a day. Its half-life is what makes that necessary. Long-term use (i.e. greater than 4 months) is not well studied, and adverse effects (e.g. dyskinesia) have been reported from chronic use. Expect the effects to be fully developed after about 30 minutes from taking it. Do *NOT* mix with other sedatives, e.g. alcohol.
