Hydroxyzine, Indications, RXlist:"For symptomatic relief of anxiety and tension associated with psychoneurosis and as an adjunct in organic disease states in which anxiety is manifested. Useful in the management of pruritus due to allergic conditions such as chronic urticaria and atopic and contact dermatoses, and in histamine-mediated pruritus. As a sedative when used as pre-medication and following general anesthesia, Hydroxyzine may potentiate meperidine (Demerols®) and barbiturates, so their use in pre-anesthetic adjunctive therapy should be modified on an individual basis. Atropine and other bella-donna alkaloids are not affected by the drug. Hydroxyzine is not known to interfere with the action of digitalis in any way and it may be used concurrently with this agent. The effectiveness of hydroxyzine as an antianxiety agent for long term use, that is more than 4 months, has not been assessed by systematic clinical studies. The physician should reassess periodically the usefulness of the drug for the individual patient."

Hydroxyzine, How it works, Whole Health MD:"Hydroxyzine is an antihistamine; that is, it blocks the effects of histamine, a naturally occurring substance in the body that causes swelling, itching, sneezing, watery eyes, hives, and other symptoms of allergic reactions. In addition to its antihistamine effect, hydroxyzine also has a sedative effect and appears to suppress activity in some regions of the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) associated with nausea and psychological distress."
http://www.wholehealthmd.com

******************************************************

Hydroxyzine, How is it best taken, HealthandAge.com:"Take with or without food. Take with food if this medicine causes an upset stomach. A liquid (syrup, suspension) is available if you cannot swallow pills. Those who have feeding tubes can also use the liquid. Flush the feeding tube before and after medicine is given. Shake suspension well first. Tablet may be crushed or capsule opened and mixed with food or liquid."

******************************************************

Hydroxyzine, What is Hydroxyzine, WebMD.net:"Hydroxyzine depresses activity in the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord), which causes relaxation and relief from anxiety. Therefore, hydroxyzine is used to treat anxiety disorders and tension in stressful situations--before surgery, for example. Hydroxyzine may also increase the effects of other medicines, such as pain relievers and sedatives, so it is useful after surgery also. Hydroxyzine is also an antihistamine. It blocks the effects of the naturally occurring chemical histamine in your body. This makes hydroxyzine useful for treating allergic conditions, especially those that involve the skin, such as hives, itching, and rashes. Hydroxyzine may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide."

Hydroxyzine, How does this medication work, MediResource:"Hydroxizine is an antihistamine used for the treatment of itching caused by allergic conditions. It is also used for the management of anxiety and tension caused by situations such as dental procedures or acute emotional problems. Hydroxyzine is also used to control nausea and vomiting (except in pregnancy)."
