  • Anyone try Alprazolam .25mg?

    Doc gave this to me a while back and it is supposed to be for nerves but I can only take it at bed time. I have the hydroxyzine so wondering if they both work the same?

    It's Xanax, and it's a benzodiazepine. Vistaril/atarax/hydroxyzine is an antihistamine, BUT it is also used for anxiety in people that are sensitive to benzos like pregnant women, and others. You might want to ask your doctor if you can take a smaller dose (half a pill?) during the day and the hydroxyzine at night. That way you get some relief from the anxiety during the day without getting so sleepy.

My bowel ruptured, I almost died from peritonitis and spent several days in the ICU then more in a private room on the floor. If you have any questions about severe constipation from pain meds please don't hesitate to send me a message.

      ps....I looked up the dose for anxiety and it's usually 0.25mg 2-3 x a day. I'd check with your doc.
