Does hydroxyzine pamoate potentiate opiates?
My doctor told me to take 50mg hydroxyzine pamoate with 15mg hydrocodone for pain, but I can't figure out what the hydroxyzine is for. Will this potentiate the effects or will it just make me fall asleep?
Asked by Karry Pfost 6 months ago.
Hydroxyzine does potentiate opiates. This has been a long known effect. It is in the same family as benadryl but has anxiolytic effects as well. It is sedating, and you can only determine how sedating, if at all, it will be to you.. until you take it. Follow your doctors advice, and be prepared to take a nap if need be, or lie down for a few hours and watch television. Don't take it together if you plan to drive, etc.. until you know how it will effect you. For some, it is strongly sedating. For others it is hardly noticeable. It won't necessarily potentiate the 'euphoria' from opiates but helps with analgesia. Answered by Brian Lymaster 6 months ago.
Hydroxyzine is an antihistamine drug similar to diphenhydramine, the active ingredient in benadryl. There are several reasons for its inclusion in your preparation. In the USA, hydrocodone is Schedule II when alone but schedule III when mixed with certain other drugs to prevent abuse. A schedule III drug has far fewer restrictions on prescription and refills than a schedule II drug. Many other counties have similar policies. Hydroxyzine will potentate the hydrocodone and will also help eliminate some of the side effects like itching and axiety that can occur with opiates. Answered by Theo Sher 6 months ago.

Is VISTARIL ( hydroxyzine pamoate) a steroid drug?
They prescribed it to me ( 37 weeks pregnant) for itching and I think it is steroid that is making my baby grow too much. I am 38 weeks and he is 8.5 pounds inside already.......
Asked by Marc Barranco 6 months ago.
Vistaril (hydroxyzine) is an antihistamine completely unrelated to steroids. It is a very effective drug to treat pruritus (itching). It is a pregnancy class C drug. If you are really concerned you could ask your doctor about over the counter Zyrtec (cetirizine) or the prescription drug Xyzal (levocetirizine). Both are class B in pregnancy and might be preferable. But in general hydroxyzine is a safe drug with sedation as its only main side effect. Answered by Naida Rottinghaus 6 months ago.
It doesn't matter that it's OTC. It's still not a good idea to mix certain medications with alcohol. (Tylenol is OTC, but taking it with even three drinks a day cause liver damage.) Anithistamine has properties that depress the central nervous system. Alcohol depresses the central nervous system. It is never a good idea to take two things at one time that are CNS depressants, especially if one is not in a controlled amount, like alcohol. Also, I am surprised that your doctor didn't tell you not to drink with the antibiotics. Alcohol essentially destroys the effects of the antibiotics, never mind how sick you will get combining the two. I don't even know about the prednisone, but unless uncontrollable vomiting and loss of consciousness sound good to you, it's a good idea to abstain until the medications are out of your system.

No, Vistaril is an Antihistamine, similar to Benadryl, which also has a mild sedative effect. It should not have any impact on your baby or it's growth. It is however not recommended for use while you are breastfeeding, so make sure to discuss that with your doctor. Answered by Stephanie Haygood 6 months ago.
Hydroxyzine is used to relieve the itching caused by allergies and to control the nausea and vomiting caused by various conditions, including motion sickness. It is also used for anxiety and to treat the symptoms of alcohol withdrawal. Answered by Shirley Fontanetta 6 months ago.

Hydroxyzine pamoate is designated chemically as 1-(p-chlorobenzhydryl) 4- [2-(2-hydroxyethoxy) ethyl] diethylenediamine salt of 1,1′-methylene bis (2 hydroxy- 3-naphthalene carboxylic acid). Inert ingredients for the capsule formulations are: hard gelatin capsules (which may contain Yellow 10, Green 3, Yellow 6, Red 33, and other inert ingredients); magnesium stearate; sodium lauryl sulfate; starch; sucrose. Inert ingredients for the oral suspension formulation are: carboxymethylcellulose sodium; lemon flavor; propylene glycol; sorbic acid; sorbitol solution; water. The Generic would be Vistaril.

It's an antihistamine with muscle-relaxing, anti emetic,anxiety reducing properties. It's a relatively older drug. If the client who you are taking care of is elderly it could be causing confusion, nightmares excitement.....If they are experiencing any of these or the like maybe the Doctor should be notified they could be having a negative reaction to the drug if they have only recently started to take it!

What would you like to ask?Hydroxyzine pamoate overdose effect What happens if I overdose?
Asked by Charline Koebel 6 months ago.
Several reactions have been noted in manufacturer guidelines — deep sleep, incoordination and dizziness have been reported in children and adults, as well as others such as hypotension, tinnitus and headaches. Gastro-intestinal effects have also been observed, as well as less serious effects such as dryness of the mouth and constipation caused by antimuscarinic properties of hydroxyzine. Central nervous system problems such as hallucinations or confusion have been observed in rare cases, attributed mostly to overdosage. Such properties have been attributed to hydroxyzine in several cases, particularly in patients treated for neuropsychological disorders, as well as in cases where overdoses have been observed. While there are reports of the "hallucinogenic" or "hypnotic" properties of hydroxyzine, several clinical data trials have not reported such side effects from the sole consumption of hydroxyzine, but rather, have described its overall calming effect described through the stimulation of areas within the formatio reticularis. The description of hallucinogenic or hypnotic properties have been described as being an additional effect from overall central nervous system suppression by other CNS agents, such as lithium or alcohol. The effect of hydroxyzine has also been tested on the ability of humans in the registration and storage of memory, and was used in comparison with relatively safe drugs, such as hydroxyzine, to illustrate the effects of benzodiazepines, which are thought to have adverse effects on the capacity of memory storage. Hydroxyzine was found to have no adverse effects on memory in relation to lorazepam, which caused several deficiencies in the capacity of memory storage. In a comparative study with lorazepam on memory effects, patients who had taken hydroxyzine experienced sedative effects similar to drowsiness, but recalled that they felt capable, attentive and able to continue with a memory test under these conditions. Conversely, those under the effects of lorazepam felt unable to continue due to the fact they felt out of control with its effects; 8 out of 10 patients describing tendencies of problems with balance and control of simple motor functions. Somnolence with or without vivid dreams or nightmares may occur in users with antihistamine sensitivities in combination with other CNS depressants. Hydroxyzine exhibits anxiolytic and sedative properties in many psychiatric patients. Other studies have suggested that hydroxyzine acts as an acute hypnotic, reducing sleep onset latency and increasing sleep duration — also showing that some drowsiness did occur. This was observed more in female patients, who also had greater hypnotic response. In addition, many have reported abnormal weight gain and intense carbohydrate cravings after long term use of Hydroxyzine. Some users may report erectile dysfunction, shortness of breath or wheezing, a result of a mild allergic reaction to the medication itself. In contrast to drugs in the benzodiazepine class, (i.e. alprazolam, diazepam) which carry a potential for abuse and dependence, hydroxyzine is very unlikely to cause any dependence due to its relative strength compared to other substances. Because of potential for more severe side effects, this drug is on the list to avoid in the elderly. Answered by Anika Aamodt 6 months ago.

Can I give my dog hydroxyzine pamoate and prednisolone at the same time?
A vet isn't available at this time with it being the holidays and she's pretty miserable, so we wanted to see if anyone knew. Thanks!
Asked by Patience Foulcard 6 months ago.
Were both medications prescribed for this dog? If so and she does not have any conditions that would be counter inducative for prednisolone such as Cushings disease, diabetes, etc, you can do both medications at the same time. Often times as prednisolone is being weaned to every other day the hydroxyzine will be used on the alternate days. With prednisolone you need to be careful and follow directions as directed. If dogs have been on high dose prednisolone and stopped suddenly the body may not realize it needs to make the right amount of steriods, which can lead to severe medical issues. Thus make sure to wean off slowly for the prednisolone. You can stop hydroxyzine without weaning your dog off of it. Answered by Cassi Krzewinski 6 months ago.

Asked by Jazmine Legel 6 months ago.
1.) Hydroxyzine Pamoate (25mg) INDICATIONS AND USES 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 premedication and following general anesthesia, Hydroxyzine may potentiate meperidine (Demerol®) and barbiturates, so their use in pre-anesthetic adjunctive therapy should be modified on an individual basis. Atropine and other belladonna 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. 2.) Geodon (60mg) INDICATIONS AND USES Ziprasidone is indicated for the treatment of schizophrenia. When deciding among the alternative treatments available for this condition, the prescriber should consider the finding of ziprasidone's greater capacity to prolong the QT/QTc interval compared to several other antipsychotic drugs (see WARNINGS). Prolongation of the QTc interval is associated in some other drugs with the ability to cause torsade de pointes-type arrhythmia, a potentially fatal polymorphic ventricular tachycardia, and sudden death. In many cases this would lead to the conclusion that other drugs should be tried first. Whether ziprasidone will cause torsade de pointes or increase the rate of sudden death is not yet known (see WARNINGS). The efficacy of ziprasidone was established in short-term (4- and 6-week) controlled trials of schizophrenic inpatients (see CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY). In a placebo-controlled trial involving the follow-up for up to 52 weeks of stable schizophrenic inpatients, GEODON was demonstrated to delay the time to and rate of relapse. The physician who elects to use GEODON for extended periods should periodically reevaluate the long-term usefulness of the drug for the individual patient. 3.) Trazodone (100mg) INDICATIONS AND USAGE DESYREL is indicated for the treatment of depression. The efficacy of DESYREL has been demonstrated in both inpatient and outpatient settings and for depressed patients with and without prominent anxiety. The depressive illness of patients studied corresponds to the Major Depressive Episode criteria of the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, III.a Major Depressive Episode implies a prominent and relatively persistent (nearly every day for at least two weeks) depressed or dysphoric mood that usually interferes with daily functioning, and includes at least four of the following eight symptoms: change in appetite, change in sleep, psychomotor agitation or retardation, loss of interest in usual activities or decrease in sexual drive, increased fatigability, feelings of guilt or worthlessness, slowed thinking or impaired concentration, and suicidal ideation or attempts. 4.) Cymbalta (30mg) INDICATIONS AND USAGE Major Depressive Disorder Cymbalta is indicated for the treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD). The efficacy of Cymbalta has been established in 8- and 9-week placebo-controlled trials of outpatients who met DSM-IV diagnostic criteria for major depressive disorder (see CLINICAL STUDIES). A major depressive episode (DSM-IV) implies a prominent and relatively persistent (nearly every day for at least 2 weeks) depressed or dysphoric mood that usually interferes with daily functioning, and includes at least 5 of the following 9 symptoms: depressed mood, loss of interest in usual activities, significant change in weight and/or appetite, insomnia or hypersomnia, psychomotor agitation or retardation, increased fatigue, feelings of guilt or worthlessness, slowed thinking or impaired concentration, or a suicide attempt or suicidal ideation. The effectiveness of Cymbalta in hospitalized patients with major depressive disorder has not been studied. Answered by Jerrie Dousay 6 months ago.
1) 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. 2) (AKA Ziprasidone) Ziprasidone is an antipsychotic medication. It works by changing the effects of chemicals in the brain. Ziprasidone is used to manage the symptoms of psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia that may include hearing voices; seeing things or sensing things that are not there; mistaken beliefs; unusual suspiciousness; or becoming withdrawn from family and friends. Ziprasidone is also used to treat bipolar mania. Ziprasidone may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide. 3) Trazodone is an antidepressant medication. It works by changing the actions of chemicals in the brain. Trazodone is used to relieve symptoms of depression such as feelings of sadness, worthlessness, or guilt; loss of interest in daily activities; changes in appetite; tiredness; sleeping too much; insomnia; and thoughts of death or suicide. Trazodone may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide. 4) (AKA Duloxetine) Duloxetine is an antidepressant medication. It affects chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced and cause depression. Duloxetine is used to treat major depressive disorder (MDD) and for the management of pain associated with diabetic peripheral neuropathy. Duloxetine may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide. Answered by Joe Hatzenbuhler 6 months ago.
