Comment:
The effectiveness of Vistaril against anxiety for me seems to be mostly placebo. I only take it occasionally (around twice a week, although I've pretty much given up on it) and, due to its ineffectiveness, I've worked my way up to 200 mgs per dose, still with very little benefit.

Comment:
I am 32 weeks pregnant and on bed rest for high blood pressure. I have had anxiety issues for a long time, and the complications have caused it to flare up. I was prescribed Vistaril, and while it does make me sleepy, I welcome that side effect because I have a hard time sleeping at night. I am prescribed 50 mg up to 4 times a day, and asked both my doctor and pharmacist if it is safe for a pregna ... Show Full Comment
