  • Can you mix ATARAX and ANIDEPRESSANTS???

    Wondering if docs combine ATARAX and ANTIDEPRESSANTS, as I have always heard that antihistamines and antidepressants don't mix. I am on small dose of WEllBUTRIN for my moods and would like to try ATARAX. It sounds promising. Especially since I have very bad allergies. I must have alot of Histamine floating around in there.
    Thank you. Can you mix ATARAX and ANTIDEPRESSANTS???

    I am on Paxil and Atarax, so I don't think there would be a problem with you taking Wellbutrin and Atarax. I would call your Doctor to make sure though! Good luck!

    History of IC, Vulvodynia, Endometriosis, Adenomyosis, Polycystic Ovaries, and Cyst's on my Spine.
    Update as of 6/27/07- Endo, Adenomyosis & Polycystic Ovaries are gone because I had a Hysterectomy in May of 2005! Still battling IC and what was thought to be Vulvodynia, now thought to be PNE.
    Meds: Paxil 40 for IC, Clonazepam 1 for Restless Leg Syndrome, Seroquel 100 for Bipolar, and pain pills as needed.

      I don't think they interact. Talk to your uro. I've taken atarax with an antidepressant before with no problems. I am actually doing that now (atarax and elavil).

          reply to drug interactions

          Well...I'm on lexapro and Atarax...along with a zillion or so other pills. I'm just sleepy all the time. But I don't think you'll be harmed

          PS...Me too in terms of Allergies and my belief that I must have a ton of mast cells floating around. It truly bites the big one.

          Good your doc if you're really concerned! T
          I.C. DX'd following my "second hysterectomy" (the remaining ovary, that kept bursting and bleeding 2 years after my hyster/right oompherectomy, was removed in 2003. I was a special ed teacher. I am now very lost, and feeling rather hopeless in my life.

          Medications I CURRENTLY take:
          90 mgs Ms contin (45 mgs Am/PM)
          Percocet as needed
