When I take this medicine in daytime I feel very sleepy. I have taken it at night but I do not see any improvement. I am still itching and have tried Vanicream.

Comment:
I take 10 mg 4 times aday. It gives some relief but less and less as time goes by. My Dr. says she's giving me the max dose but I have wondered if there is another medication that would do a better job or something to work in conjunction with the Hydroxyzine HCl (?).

Comment:
I was prescribed this medication for severe allergies. One pill did nothing so I took a second pill. DRUG DOES NOT SEDATE I now take 2 together with hopes that it will build up in my system/body and stop the itching from my severe allergic reactions.
