Hydroxyzine drug information

Drug Information: Hydroxyzine belongs to a group of drugs called antihistamines. Hydroxyzine is used to reduce itching in skin conditions such as urticaria. Contact with substances such as pollen, pet hair, dust, and insect bites can cause some people to overproduce histamine. This extra histamine causes hives and itchy skin. Hydroxyzine reduces allergy symptoms by reducing the effects of histamine.


Contraindications to hydroxyzine

  • Pay attention to the expiration date of the hydroxyzine medicine and do not take it if the medicine in your hand has expired.
  • Never give hydroxyzine to anyone else, even if you have the same symptoms.
    • Do not take more than the dose of hydroxyzine prescribed by your doctor.
  • Check for hydroxyzine drug interactions and be sure to tell your doctor what other medications you are taking.

Drug interactions may alter drug performance and increase the risk of serious side effects. Make a list of all the medicines (including prescription / over-the-counter medicines and herbal products) you use and share them with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not change the dose of your medicine without consulting your doctor or stop taking the medicine.

Some medications that may interact with hydroxyzine include skin antihistamines (such as creams, ointments, and diphenhydramine sprays).

Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking medicines that cause drowsiness, including: alcohol, antihistamines (such as cetirizine, diphenhydramine), sleeping pills or anxiety medications (such as alprazolam), alprazolam (alprazolam) (diazepam), zolpidem, muscle relaxants, and analgesics and painkillers (such as codeine).

Check the labels on all your medicines (such as allergies or cough and cold medicines) because some of them are made up of substances that cause drowsiness. Ask your pharmacist how to use them so that you can use them safely.
