Vistaril 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.
Vistaril is used as a sedative to treat anxiety and tension. It is also used together with other medications given for anesthesia. Hydroxyzine (Vistaril) may also be used to control nausea and vomiting.
I have had it for awhile but I do not really like the feeling of antihistamines.
Many people like it and find it helpful for the above.
