My pdoc took me off of it and added vistaril 25mg to my meds a couple days ago. Still having trouble with the restless anxious feelings, but they seem to be worsening now. I just started vistaril today, and it isn't doing anything for it. My question is, is the dose too low, is tat why I feel no relief? What else can I do with this? I feel so wretched and cant sleep. All I do is wander about and sometimes eat to distract myself.

I currently take hydroxyzine (brand name here is atarax, it's the same as vistaril) for anxiety and as sleep aid. 25 mg is very mild (for me). 2 weeks ago, I have been agressed at work, and I became very anxious, felt a lot of fear etc. I took 7 of those 25 mg pills between 10 : 30 AM and 3 AM (during the night following that awful day), it was just enough to stop me to cry...
I don't know your age and I don't know if you have hepatic or other pathologies, but 25 mg seems a weak dosage for anxiety.
I hope you will feel better quickly
