Atarax (Hydroxyzine). Dosage, Side Effects, Interactions

Atarax (Hydroxyzine) helps with allergies, calms the itching and also has an anxiolytic and sleep-inducing effect. It suppresses the effects of the body’s own substance histamine.
As a type of messenger substance in the body, histamine plays an important role in the development of inflammation and allergic reactions. Blocking this messenger substance interrupts the course of the allergic reaction. In addition, the stimulating histamine effect is suppressed in the brain, which results in the calming properties of the active ingredient.

Take the medicine with liquid (e.g. 1 glass of water).

Duration of use?
The duration of use depends on the type of complaint and/or duration of the illness and is therefore only determined by your doctor.

Forgot to take?
Continue taking it as normal (i.e. not double the amount) at the next prescribed time.

In general, pay attention to a conscientious dosage, especially for infants, small children and the elderly. If in doubt, ask your doctor or pharmacist about any effects or precautions.

A dosage prescribed by the doctor may deviate from the information on the package leaflet. Therefore, since the doctor adjusts them individually, you should use the medicine according to his instructions.
