Indications for Generic Atarax

Atarax or hydroxyzine hydrochloride is an antihistamine. Antihistamines generally work through decreasing the effect of a histamine. A histamine is a chemical released by the body, narrowing the lung’s air passages which could contribute to swelling, itching and secretions from the eyes, nose and throat.

Atarax is essentially used for: the relief of tension and anxiety; the treatment of anxiety resulting from a physical illness, in combination with other drugs; and the relief of itching caused by allergic reactions. It can also be used as a sedative that can be administered before and after general anesthesia.
