• anxiolytic
  • Due to its antagonistic effects on several receptor systems in the brain, hydroxyzine also has anxiolytic, antiobsessive, and antipsychotic activity. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, a systematic review concluded that compared with other anxiolytic agents (benzodiazepines and buspirone), hydroxyzine was equivalent in efficacy, acceptability, and tolerability, however there is insufficient evidence to recommend it as a treatment for generalised anxiety disorder due to the high risk of bias in the reviewed studies. (wikipedia.org)
  • For dentistry and obstetrics as well as other surgeries and procedures and acute pain situations like accidents, hydroxyzine is useful as a first-line anxiolytic and opioid adjunct because it lacks both antagonism and synergy with benzodiazepines and scopolamine, allowing either of these agents to be used simultaneously or later in the procedure if need be.

  • doses
  • citation needed] The administration of hydroxyzine in large amounts by ingestion or intramuscular administration during the onset of pregnancy can cause fetal abnormalities-when administered to pregnant rats, mice and rabbits, hydroxyzine caused abnormalities such as hypogonadism with doses significantly above that of the human therapeutic range.

  • Treatments
  • Staff noted that Pierre had no problems molting prior to his hydroxyzine treatments. (wikipedia.org)
  • Because the vest was worn during one of these periods when Pierre was not on his treatments, it is unknown whether the hydroxyzine was the actual cause of the molting problem. (wikipedia.org)
  • However
  • I started both at once - however, I take the Elavil around 8pm and the Hydroxyzine at 9pm - It will take you a couple of days to adjust - I would suggest starting over the weekend (if you have to get up early in the morning). (ic-network.com)

  • The following Hydroxyzine Myocardial Infarction side effect reports were submitted by healthcare professionals and consumers. (patientsville.com)
  • This Myocardial Infarction Hydroxyzine Pamoate side effect was reported by a consumer or non-health professional from UNITED STATES on Oct 26, 2010. (patientsville.com)
  • Studies
  • In humans, a significant dose has not yet been established in studies, and by default, the FDA has introduced contraindication guidelines in regard to hydroxyzine. (wikipedia.org)
  • patient
  • A female patient from UNITED KINGDOM was prescribed and started Hydroxyzine Hcl on Nov 07, 2005. (patientsville.com)
  • One patient has been treated with "paravertebral nerve blocks, with bupivacaine and methylprednisolone acetate injected into the T3-T4 and T5-T6 intervertebral spaces" Hydroxyzine has also been used with considerable success in some cases as long as the pills are used daily. (wikipedia.org)
