Good Morning Janet
I have used this drug as it is a antihistamine Hydroxyzine/Atarax. You may have heard of it by the name of Vistaril which is used frequently in hospital settings as an injection.
It is prescribed for symptomatic relief of anxiety and tension. However this drug is not intended for long term use, no more than 4 months.
It is worth talking to you physician about. I used it for an antihistamine. It may make you feel drowsy. Hope this helps answer your question.
