I am currently ceasing Clonazepam. To deal with the rebound anxiety associated with tapering off of a Benzodiazapine, my doctor has prescribed me Hydroxyzine HCL. Has anyone else had success with this medication? So far, about 40 minutes after taking it I feel very relaxed, calm and drowsy. I am optimistic about this medication soothing the effects of withdrawal from the Clonazepam. Has anyone else had success with this medication? Answered by Ashton Garey 4 months ago.

We don't give the human inserts for the human medications that we prescribe for animals. We have written our own concerning the use, side effects and dose for animals. Vets can get in trouble when they use the human inserts as some people might inadvertently start using the medication prescribed for their pet. There are many medications that are used for both pets and people. In fact when compared, there are many more medications approved for use in people then in animals. Many medications are actually considered "off label use" when prescribed for animals. Anti-histamines, anti seizure medications, many cardiac drugs are just some of the drug classes that do not have an animal counterpart but are still commonly used in animal medicine. Answered by Doria Arnoldy 4 months ago.
Yes, I think this is standard practice. It is very common that many medications can be used for both humans and dogs. I teased my husband before about him taking dog medication because him and our dog were taking the same antibiotic at the same time, coincidentally. It was even the same dosage amount. I'm not sure, but my guess as to why the leaflet addresses only human usage, is because it may have only been created and tested for human usage. The manufacturer could probably care less about marketing it for animals. There is much less medical regulations for animals than for people so it's probably unnecessary for a company to invest money in addressing animals with their product. They let the vet take care of that. Answered by Lennie Patzer 4 months ago.
My dog has been on that medication for his allergies. There are several that both dogs and humans use and there are other meds with the same name BUT are modified for dogs. Many of those dog modified medications come with info for dogs and dogs only. ike the medication Tramadol, it is a pain medication used for both humans and dogs however the dog formula is different. I know with those medications the info is different. When my vet prescribes meds she gives me a print out or tells me to go to VeterinarianPartner.com. I guess it may all depend where your vet obtains their prescritpions from. Also if there is a medication that is exactly formulate the same for dogs and humans it is actually cheaper to get it from your human pharmacy but then for sure your leaflet is going to be all human directed.

A "Spring Board" that's the call given to a mix of Springer Spaniel (often English, often field-bred) and Border Collie. Yeah, via fact crossing a dogs that could bounce 6 ft today interior the air from a standstill and takes as much as 3 years to psychologically mature with a dogs that could bypass from 0-60 in a million.2 seconds and has an obsessive could desire to be working and moving sixteen hours an afternoon is a huge concept ~ sarcasm ~ on the different hand, the call is a especially precise description of the madness of maximum that I even have met... Answered by Ola Busic 4 months ago.
MANY medications prescribed and used in vet hospitals are used on the "wrong" species. For example, a lot of medications given to dogs for parasites are truly large animal medications, and labeled for large animals. Generic brands may be labeled for different uses by different species, but most medications are put on the market for use on one or two specific species, even though they can be used for multiple species. So they're not going to put out a "dog" label, a "cat" label, a "horse" label, etc... BTW, nice little trick to keep in mind, many medicines prescribe for common ailments in pets are the same medications given to humans, and are available at pharmacies. You don't HAVE to buy them from your vets office. You can ask them to write you a prescription, go down to your local pharmacy or Walmart, and pick up the same exact medication for a LOT Cheaper. As in, a medicine that your vet will charge you 40$ for may be bought at Walmart for 4$. Answered by Gianna Henagan 4 months ago.
Very Common. A lot of the same medications are used on both humans and animals just in different doses. Answered by Arianne Toof 4 months ago.

Been using this medication for YEARS on my dogs but then found generic Benadryl works just as good and is MUCH cheaper. I asked my vet about he Benadryl and he said go for it. So, no worries. The manufacturer has never changed the booklet. It is an older medication and is rarely prescribed for humans now. Answered by Norbert Demorest 4 months ago.

Hydroxyzine HCL (hydrochloride) otherwise known as Vistaril, is a multipurpose medication used to alleviate anxiety, emotional stress (especially before medical procedures) and various allergic conditions like asthma, hives and severe itching. This medication works as an antihistamine in patients with allergic reactions. Hydroxyzine HCL should not be taken in combination with alcohol, narcotics or barbiturates. SIDE EFFECTS: Immediate medical attention should be sought if the following signs of an allergic reaction to hydroxyzine hydrochloride occur: hives; swelling of the tongue, face, lips or throat; and difficulty breathing ORTHO TRI-CYCLEN® LO offers a highly effective, low-hormone birth control pill with predictable periods and a low occurrence of common side effects. Important Safety Information Serious as well as minor side effects have been reported with the use of oral contraceptives. Serious risks, which can be life threatening, include blood clots, stroke and heart attacks, and are increased if you smoke cigarettes. Cigarette smoking increases the risk of serious cardiovascular side effects, especially if you are over 35. Women who use oral contraceptives are strongly advised not to smoke.

My primary care doctor prescribed me hydroxzine HCL 25 mg and it's not doing anything for me, an?
So as of right now my doc won't talk to me and it's to help treat anxiety. 25 mg isn't doing anything for me so am I able to up the milligrams to like maybe around 30 or 50 to see if it does anything for me? Also what is it supposed to make you feel when and if it does work?
Asked by Mildred Arnsberger 4 months ago.
25 mg of hydroxyzine for the relief of anxiety is a very small dose indeed. Are you only prescribed it once a day or more often? The official prescribing information for hydroxyzine HCL states that "for symptomatic relief of anxiety and tension associated with psychoneurosis and as an adjunct in organic disease states in which anxiety is manifested"... the typical daily dose in adults is 50–100 mg three to four times daily. So it is hardly surprising that 25 mg is not effective since it is unlikely to produce anxiolysis (reduced anxiety). Best thing to do is call your doctor and ask him about increasing the dose. If you can't get him on the phone make an appointment if that is what it takes. Also depending on the type of anxiety you have (eg., generalized anxiety, panic disorder, social anxiety, OCD) hydroxyzine may not be a good option. It is really only effective in treating generalized anxiety and secondary (symptomatic) anxiety due to a primary medical disorder. If it works correctly it should basically just make you more relaxed, more capable of dealing with stressful activities, and you may feel some mild tiredness. Hydroxyzine is an antihistamine, it is not a sedative or a tranquilizer. UPDATE: To clarify although I think you probably require a larger dose of hydroxyzine, I certainly don't recommend you increase the dose on your own- you need to speak with your doctor. Also as I said hydroxyzine is an antihistamine but despite that it is FDA approved to treat anxiety. It is also approved to treat various forms of anxiety in Canada, The United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, France, and many other countries. So contrary to what raina_vissora wrote hydroxyzine is an appropriate, well studied, and approved treatment for anxiety (I have attached a couple of links to its prescribing information in the source area). Hydroxyzine is also commonly used and FDA aproved for allergic conditions such as chronic urticaria and atopic or contact dermatoses and in histamine-mediated pruritus (itching). In fact there is two different brands of hydroxyzine, one, Atarax (hydroxyzine hydrochloride), was primarily marketed as an anxiolytic (it also started to be used for symptomatic relief in opioid and alcohol withdrawal management, insomnia, and other things), the other drug Vistaril (hydroxyzine pamoate) was marketed towards dermatological problems, allergies, to reduce motion sickness, pruritus, nausea/vomiting, and related problems. Furthermore hydroxyzine is not a medication that takes much time to work since hydroxyzine is rapidly absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract and its clinical effects are usually noted within 15 to 30 minutes after oral administration making it a fairly rapid onset medication. Antidepressants like Zoloft (sertraline) do typically take weeks (in some cases as long as 8 weeks) before they start to work but hydroxyzine is in a different class. In fact the major benefit of hydroxyzine is that it works quickly, like benzodiazepines and barbiturates, but it has not potential for abuse or dependence. The down side is that it tends not to be the most effective medication however it can work very well when treating generalized anxiety. Lastly if you see your doctor again and whatever change is made by him (or not) and you still don't get better you might ask him for a referral for a psychiatrist. Typically general practitioners are not good with using psychiatric medication, many under prescribe, other over prescribe, and still more prescribe improperly. Good luck and keeping in mind that no matter what it can take time to find the best medication for anxiety and there are many different classes of medications, each with many drugs . Answered by Brandie Lagant 4 months ago.
First of all... how long have you been taking it? Anxiety treatments often take days or even weeks before any significant change is observed. Second... no, you should not just up your dosage. Especially if you don't know what the safe dosage of the medication actually is, and particularly when dealing with a medication that has sedative properties, like hydroxyzine. Incidentally, hydroxyzine is actually just an antihistamine... it's not specifically meant to treat anxiety. It is occasionally *used* to treat anxiety because of it's sedative properties. It's basically a tranquilizer, so it's supposed to make you feel calm and sleepy, and maybe a little loopy (if you've ever taken NyQuil, you'll know what I mean). Your doctor probably won't switch you to something new until you've been on your current medication for at least a month. Anxiety doesn't get better overnight. It takes time to see if the treatment is having an effect. Answered by Charlette Stadtler 4 months ago.
Some will, some won't. It depends on what they are comfortable with. Most of my primary care doctors have been willing to do so. I am pretty certain any primary care would at least prescribe what your current psychiatrist is giving you. Also, given your thyroid condition, I myself would prefer to get all my meds from one doctor. At least ask your medical doctor, even have your records forwarded, and I bet he will write the prescription. Answered by Bobette Wurst 4 months ago.
Do you mean hydoxyzine? Whenever you start a new drug, the doctor will always prescribe the lowest dose. If it doesn't seem to be enough, then let your doctor know and she will probably increase the dose. Starting with a high dose of hydroxyzine can actually cause anxiety. Just don't increase the dose on your own. Answered by Nga Pedregon 4 months ago.
that isn't very much. the usual does for anxiety is 50 to 100 mg 4 times a day. Answered by Grant Alterman 4 months ago.

Suggest you see the MD that prescribed the med. You could need a dosage change or then again some meds take 4 to 6 wks. for the side affects to stop.(contraindications). Try reading the print out that the pharmacy gives you when you get scrip.Or if nothing ask for a consult with the pharmacist !! Still I would see my PCP(Dr.) and discuss the situation ASAP !! If you are taking other meds in combo there may be an interaction and that is definately NOT GOOD !! Hope this helped. Good Luck !! Answered by Bao Kupfer 4 months ago.
