Atarax (Hydroxyzine) User Reviews
I have been using Atarax for three months now and I already feel much better. I've been having issues with severe anxiety in the past six years and none of the medications prescribed were helping me and I've been using so many that I've even lost count. I've had a lot of troubles with falling asleep. I recently went to see my doctor and this time he prescribed this medication and I can't thank him enough. I was given 25 mg to take twice a day. I find Atarax very helpful for my anxiety.
I am 19 and I have never used any medications previously in my life. I've always been afraid of possible side effects and I suffer from social anxiety since the age of 13. I asked my doctor for something that will help me cope with my everyday issues and he prescribed Atarax. I have been taking it for a month now and I'm starting to feel the effects and I don't feel tired during the day. This medication works very well for me, it has a great calming effect and I am overall satisfied with this drug.
It helps a lot with my anxiety and helps me with my sleep. But I do experience the side effects - at times I feel like I can barely keep my eyes open and I feel like I have no energy.
I have been using Atarax for itching due to my seasonal allergies. I take one 25mg tablet before sleep and it helps me a lot. It's non-addictive and I don't experience any side effects, but I must say that when I first started using it I did feel a bit nauseous and dizzy, but it quickly went away. Compared to other drugs I've been using, Atarax is so far the best. I have also noticed that I fall asleep much easier and I am beyond satisfied.
My skin has been itching for no apparent reason. It was so hard for me to fall asleep at night due to constant itch. I couldn't stand it any longer and it was slowly starting to drive me crazy. My doctor prescribed Atarax and I'm feeling much better now. I feel so relieved when I lay in bed at night not having to cope with itching! I am at ease and I can say that this medication definitely saved me from many sleepless nights. This is the only thing that has helped me and for that I am thankful.
I suffer from panic attacks and I find that a 50mg capsule can help me stop a panic attack and calm me down when I can't seem to distract and calm myself in any other way. I have tried a lot of other medications and none of them was working. But Atarax works immediately and lasts for hours. It controls my panic attacks so far. I've heard people talk about the hangover part, but I personally haven't experienced it.
My son was prescribed with Atarax for generalized anxiety disorder. He was taking 25mg every 12 hours and it wasn't really helping. He also had a feeling of drowsiness and was sleepy all day. Not so good.
I'm bipolar and I must say that Atarax really works for me. Other medications make me feel knocked out. I like it because it has a good price, it gives me no side effects and I feel much better.
The doctor told me that this medication isn't habit forming like other medications used for anxiety. It really helps. My mother passed away and the anxiety kicked in so I needed something to calm me down. I was going trough some really rough time and Hydroxyzine has helped a lot. I'm taking 25mg twice a day and now I am in a much better state than I was before.
I have eczema and this drug controls the itching. I am a light sleeper, but Atarax calms me down and helps me sleep better at night. It is not addicting and I haven't experienced any side effects. It did make me a little dizzy at first, but it was worth it because I finally got rid of the annoying itch. This medicine definitely works wonders.
