Answered by Celestine Generous 6 months ago.
Well vistaril hydroxzine does not exist, so im guessing you meant "Vistaril Hydroxyzine" First Off: Hydroxyzine reduces activity in the central nervous system. It also acts as an antihistamine that reduces the natural chemical histamine in the body. Histamine can produce symptoms of sneezing and runny nose, or hives on the skin. Hydroxyzine is used as a sedative to treat anxiety and tension. It is also used together with other medications given for anesthesia. Hydroxyzine may also be used to control nausea and vomiting. SO as for you 2 question, "Can i get "High" for it" and "can i Snort it". The Answer is Yes and No. If you were to snot this medication, you would feel very very good for around 4 min. Then after that you would begin to light headed. Then after that you would begin to become dizzy and feel your internal temperature increase drastically. After about 3 min of this, you would begin to produce a large amount of saliva, which your body will reject in the form of White Foam Discharge from your noise and mouth, After about 5 min of this, your core temperature will be so elevated inside your cranium (Skull) that your brain will begin shutting down vital functions to prevent permanent brain damage. With-in 5 min of this, you will fall back, your eyes will roll back into your head, you will begin a violent convolution/seizure (ive heard its so strong that some people break their own back). Now if you live long enough to make it to the hospital, you will be alive, but in a coma. You will have severe brain damage, and will be on a automatic breather. At this point your parents will have to make the decision to keep you on the breather, completely brain dead fro the rest of your life, or, pull the plug. Think I am Kidding???? Well sadly i'm not. When i was in Medical School i saw kids go through that ALL the time because they either take to much, or they snort it (Ingested it through their nose). The FDA considered taking the drug off the market because of how violent the death is with people the overdose on Vistaril Hydroxyzine. So for your question, you can get "high" but your risk of going through what i just explained is around 71.8%. This medication is NOT like Xanax or Valium where the user and take a large dose to become intoxicated. If you take a large does of Vistaril Hydroxyzine, you will die, im not kidding. This is however a very good medication if you take it exactly how your doctor tells you to, and it can really help your situation. Also, do NOT sell medication to your friends. I doent really care about you getting in trouble with the law for selling your meds, whats more important to me is, if your friend, the one your sold lets say Xanax to, goes out and drinks with his friends, and then takes the pills you gave him. Not only will he die, or cause permanent damaged, but YOU will be charged with MURDER! That right. this is a US Federal Law. The person that Sells the medication is Responsible for the death or injury of the person that takes it. I just saw a 17 year old kid get charged with 2nd Degree Man Slaughter (Sentenced to 23 years with out parole) for giving his friend some of his Anxiety meds, and his friend got in a car accident when he was driving home and was killed. Not only is he going to prison, but his family is now being sued by the victims family, and they will probably take the house. This is all because some stupid ignorant kids wanted to get high. Worth it? Answered by Keli Muddaththir 6 months ago.
First off, you can't come in insulting a person for missing a letter in the name just because u did some work in medicine unless everything you say afterward is going to be perfectly written. I Am prescribed this drug and it works very well as prescribed for that reason. I agree that it sounds like you're probably a junkie trying to use this pill to get a new high. I appreciate the comments made earlier about some of the facts that are true but I have to admit that the whole pamphlet of drama could have been left out. The scare tactics as stated earlier were very easily laughable to someone misusing drugs. It makes it even more unbelievable when things begin to sound personal and are spelled incorrectly .

I am single mum. I have been suffering for panic attacks for some 15 years now, though it was not until recently I understood what they were. They were progressively getting stronger and more frequent, stopping me from some days even leaving my house. I read this book and it all made perfect sense. I am not saying I was not terrified of putting theory to action, I was more scared of that than the next attack! But I decided to view it as a game, one I had control of and could therefore not lose!

The guy that said your head heats up and shuts down is either stupid, or messing with you. Google Overdose on Vistaril. Pull up the one that says Drugs.Com.

How can Vistaril help with Anxiety?
How is it better than Xanax or Kolonopins? Those are my other options.
Asked by Dan Dansbury 6 months ago.
Vistaril, like many drugs, has more than one action. Sometimes, the other action has nothing to do with the type of drug it is. Yes, Vistaril belongs in the antihistamine class but it is also a drug that affects acetylcholine, serotonin and the brain causing a calming effect. It is due to this calming effect that Vistaril is often prescribed for anxiety. It is a proven drug in the short-term treatment of nervousness and tension that may occur with certain mental or mood disorders. Did you know that this drug is often given prior to surgery (part of the "pre-op") because of it's calming effect? It is to allay the patient's anxiety that is caused by impending surgery. Always keep in mind that many drugs have more than one use no matter what their classification. Vistaril does not work like benadryl...benadryl is not given for anxiety. Not all drugs of the same classification are the same. If they were, we would only need one of every type drug for everyone that needs it. Answered by Benny Ingles 6 months ago.
I was prescribed Vistaril at 25mg about 2 years ago for anxiety. All it really does for me is make me sleep. I take it only when I absolutly have to and only at night so I can sleep when I am having anxiety. I filled my last prescription for 30 pills last May and still have about 15 left. It is not really suppose to be something you take on a regular schedule its more of a when you need it drug. Answered by Geoffrey Woolworth 6 months ago.

What is hydroxine (vistaril)?
i heard it was a nerve pill but some people told me it was a anxiety pill? can someone tell me what it is? please?
Asked by Margherita Chadek 6 months ago.
Vistaril and Atarax (hydroxyzine) is a somewhat unique antihistamine. It used to treat pruritus (itching) and more recently it has become popular for use in treating anxiety, for insomnia, for nausea/vomiting, for sedation (adjacent anesthesia), for migraine (adjacent to analgesics and/or triptans), and occasionally for pain (adjacent to opioids). When it is used with other drugs for sedation or pain it synergizes, and enhances the actions of the other drugs. Drugs like Zyrtec (cetirizine) and the even newer Xyzal (levocetirizine) are active metabolites of hydroxyzine but typically produce no sedation where as hydroxyzine is moderately sedating. But yes it is used for treating anxiety. It has a mild anti-anxiety effect for some people. It was first popular in drug rehab and detox because it is not addictive and works quickly. The standard medications for anxiety are antidepressants which take 4-6 weeks to work and benzodiazepines (Xanax, Valium, Ativan, Klonopin/Rivotril). However benzodiazepines can be abused. Now it is being used to treat mild anxiety in all types of people and more often benzodiazepines are being reserved for people with extreme acute anxiety or for people who fail to respond to conventional treatments. A "nerve pill" is a very archaic term for an anti-anxiety medication. Anxiety is not typically called "nerves" anymore especially since anxiety disorder are recognized as real medical conditions. A normal dose for anxiety is 25-100 mg every 4-6hrs as needed (max 600 mg/day). Personally I think hydroxyzine is not a very good drug for anxiety or insomnia, it tends to have significant side effects, and its efficacy is unimpressive. But in people with a substance abuse problem it is a good medication. Answered by Anabel Jaap 6 months ago.
Can implies ability to. And I'm betting you're capable! now, if you should or not is a horse of a different color. So, Can... yes. Should? Read the label on the Vistaril. Every prescription I've ever had has what to eat/drink when you take it, how often to take it, and if you can mix it with other goodies. Answered by Wilmer Dubiel 6 months ago.
I think that you mean hydroxyzine (with that extra y). Vistaril is a brand name. It reduces activity in the central nervous system, it's an antihistamine, a sedative to treat anxiety and tension, part of an anesthetic "cocktail," controlling nausea and vomiting (so anti-sea sickness), and finally, various skin reactions, like hives. So it is a "nerve pill" and it's also an anti-anxiety pill. Answered by Rowena Whitworth 6 months ago.
Vistaril and Zofran?
Is it safe to take both at the same time? I'm on vistaril for anxiety and Zofran as needed. I'm kinda kinda worried about the fact that there could possibly be an interaction problem.
Asked by Reid Briede 6 months ago.
Vistaril and Zofran can be safely taken together, though the Zofran may increase the drowsiness effect of Vistaril. Vistaril is an antihistamine that can be used to help with nausea and is commonly prescribed as a sleep aid. Zofran is a serotonin antagonist, so it has a different mechanism of action in the body than Vistaril does as an antihistime. Just be careful about driving if you're taking both. It's probably not a good idea. Answered by Latrisha Heger 6 months ago.

I have always had problems with sleep paralysis. However, Zoloft made it stop. After a breakdown and flashbacks of a murder, I have been disgnosed with PTSD and my ER doc put me on 50mg Hydroxyzine pam. Last night I woke unable to move with my eyes CLOSED. This has never happened. I have always been able to shake myself out of them but this time I was unable to see and horrifyed. I quit the medicine. Now my PTSD is worsening. Has anyone had this? Answered by Mariano Curbow 6 months ago.
Vistaril has a relatively short half-life. It is an antihistamine, which can be dosed every 4-6hrs. However, it is also often used for sleep or anxiety. The med should be completely out of your system within 24-36 hrs after taking it. If you are still having any effects, like worsening of your PTSD, I think it is partly because of your scary experience last night. Since vistaril is an antihistamine, and you had a negative reaction to it, you may also want to avoid similar antihistamines (e.g. the older ones) for sleep. (Drugs such as benadryl or clor-trimeton MAY affect you similarly). Atarax is hydroxyzine HCl, so you would definately want to avoid that. Hope this helps. Hope you find something that helps your PTSD!! Answered by Karren Lovisone 6 months ago.
I took 200 mg of hydroxyzine the other night and had no problems. Perhaps you have an allergy. I'm sure you need another diagnosis. Answered by Britta Nicholl 6 months ago.

I take Vistaril and never had that reaction. It's an antihistamine also used for nausea and vomiting. I take 50 Mg at a time. How much does your sister take?. I've been on this drug for many years but even when I first took it, my Dr said it may make me sleepy at first, which it didn't, but I never felt like what you are describing about your sister. If she has a history of drug abuse, don't believe her if she's telling you it's the vistaril because it's not a narcotic, The most it should do to her is make her tired, but still function.

Asked by Louetta Thornburg 6 months ago.
Vistaril is an antihistamine and antianxiety agent. It is prescribed for nausea, vomiting, anxiety, tension, agitation, itching caused by allergy, and sedation. It also is a muscle-relaxing antiemetic (antivomiting), bronchial dilating, pain relieving and antispasmodic problems, used for stress due to dental or surgical problems, acute emotional problems, anxiety associated with heart disease, and skin problems. My husband was given it for itching due to psoriasis. It will make him sleepy, it does my husband. It can also cause your sinuses to get too dry because it is an antihistamine. It has side effects that can be life threatening like breathing difficulties, chest tightness, wheezing which all are signs of a drug sensitivity reaction. Changes in heart rhythem have occured. It depresses the central nervous system so don't take with alcohol, tranquilizers, sedatives or other antihistamine products or CNS depressants. It produces sleepiness and drowsiness. Take with food to avoid upset stomach. It also causes dry mouth. hope this helps. Answered by Catherin Spragley 6 months ago.

It is mostly used to treat symptoms of allergies. The most common side effects are drowsiness and dry mouth. But, a lot of other medication have the same side effects. So, it depends on the other medication that he's also taking. It can increase the chance of having those side effects. So it's important to have a good oral hygiene during the treatment. It's also important not to take any alcohol or other central nervous system depressant, because it can increase the effects of the medication. :0) Answered by Latina Elvis 6 months ago.

What can happen when you mix vistaril, and caffiene? specially when sick and take aleve and thera flu?
well lately ive been trying to sleep but haven't been because if felt freaked or scared ill fall asleep and wake up in a panic.. i was wondering if these mixed together could be causing it? and what are all the possible of side effects combining these medication?
Asked by Loria Obremski 6 months ago.
The vistaril should make you drowsy. The caffeine can counteract that and keep you awake/cause nervousness/etc The aleve shouldn't effect your sleep. It should be taken with food though as it can cause stomach upset. Cold medicines usually have many ingredients. Psedoephedrine can keep you awake and it's recommended not to take a product with this in it 4 hours before bed. They often combine it with an ingredient such as chlorpheniramine (which causes drowsiness) to decrease the wakefulness affects of the pseudoephedrine. I would try to cut back on the caffeine, and don't take the cold medicine before bed. The vistaril is okay before bed--as the doctor recommended Answered by Kirsten Leggett 6 months ago.

i was already taking vistaril. the psychiatric nurse practitioner perscribed me lexipro and said i can still take vistaril and they wont interact. but i looked it up and it said i shouldnt. is it okay to take them both.?
Asked by Lynne Tintinger 6 months ago.
I agree w/ your practitioner, who is being practical. Both escitalopram (Lex) and hydroxyzine (Vistaril) have sedative properties that combined may cause dizziness, etc. However, there are over 50,000 potential drug interactions between all the drugs we have on the market, and if every practitioner and pharmacist nixed them, we wouldn't be able to prescribe anything. That means we have to make value judgments, and I would say of the spiders web of thousands of theoretical interactions before us, only about 20-30 are really, really serious, and must be intercepted immediately. Lexapro / Vistaril is a rather low one, if I saw one added to the other, I wouldn't consider putting a stop order on it, just warn them to see how the combination affects them, not drive right after taking the 2 drugs together the first time, etc. Just common sense stuff. If it is going to happen, it will happen right away -- after the first or second dose. I would advise the same to you. My decision to intercept a drug order is not usually determined by the two drugs alone, but the disposition of the patient. Very old/young? Breast feeding/pregnant? Highly allergic to similar drugs? Liver or kidney failure? Diabetic? Those are more important to my thinking. Source: I am a pharmacist Answered by Hassie Placido 6 months ago.
