    I take 50 mg a night for Mastocytosis. I was very tired at first and started out at 25 Mg a night. But eventually your body gets used to it, if you can stick with the tiredness this is very helpful for itching.

    I was diagnosed with Physical Urticaria (form of Hives) about 7 years ago. Has not flared up till now. Took Benadryl everyday for 1 month only with temporary relief. Finally went to Dr and was prescribed w/Hydroxyzine HCL 25mg. I took before bed last night and have not itched at ALL day. I'm hoping tomorrow will be an itch free day!!
