atarax hydroxyzine

Atarax (hydroxyzine) is an antihistamine that reduces the natural chemical histamine in the body. Histamine can produce symptoms of sneezing, itching, watery eyes, and runny nose. Atarax is used to treat anxiety and tension, to relieve the skin symptoms of allergies, to control nausea and vomiting, and to treat dry mouth. It is also used together with other medications given for anesthesia. Atarax may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
