  1. For years I've been taking remeron at night for sleep and it helps a lot with my appetite. Last week my doctor switched me from remeron 22.5 mg at night to hydroxyzine 50 mg before bed. He said it would be kind of like getting the antihistamine benefits (sleep, appetite) without the noradrenic and serotonin action of the remeron (remeron tends to make be too activating for me, increasing my anxiety). Does this sound about right? I started the switch 2 nights ago and felt alright until just a few hours ago when I started getting really paranoid and feeling like I was panicking and just out of it. My appetite has been good though, I get real hungry about an hour or so after taking the hydroxyzine just like I did with remeron which for me is a bonus. I'm wondering if my dose at 50 mg is too high though. I'm also taking valium 5 mg twice a day and effexor 37.5 mg once a day.
  2. Would another antihistamine such as Hydroxyzine be something worth trying instead of Remeron for sleep, appetite, and anxiety? I ask this because every time I have been on remeron it has been amazing the first few weeks. I sleep great, wake up refreshed, and eat well and put on much needed weight, which I'm guessing from it's powerful antihistamine effect. But each time after about a month while I continue to sleep and eat better my anxiety actually gets worse, and I get agitated and edgy a lot, which I'm guessing is from the norepinephrine part kicking in? Would a drug like Hydroxyzine or something similar maybe still give me that feeling like I have the first few weeks on remeron without the negative stuff several weeks later? I just with remeron would keep working forever like it always does those first few weeks.
  3. Hi everyone, I want to give a heads up to you guys about Atarax (Hydroxyzine). It's an antishistamine used to treat anxiety. Well, I've been having depressive crashes every single week for about 2 years now. I was recently prescribed this drug for anxiety to be taken as needed. Well, I had a rough patch and took it steadily for a number of days in a row, and this past week has been one of the first weeks that I haven't crashed. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydroxyzine I wanted to throw this out there as it may be of use to some of you. I know it sounds weird, I certainly wasn't expecting it, but taking it steadily was the only thing that changed. It seems to have some kind of mood stabilizing effect, at least for me. troop
  4. Anyone else here take vistaril for anxiety? I used to take buspar but that didn't work so now I'm on vistaril. All it seems to be doing is making me tired, like benadryl does. I can expect that since they are both antihistamines. But, does vistaril actually work for anyone here? I think the reason why it isn't working for me is because most of my anxiety comes from my concerta speeding up my heart rate, and vistaril doesn't slow it down. I used to have klonopin for that, but my doctor took me off of it since it was addictive.
