What is hydroxyz pam used for?

I found a bottle of hydroxy pam in my husband office and want to understand why he would be taking it.

It was originally used as an antihistamine but is also used as a mild sedative to treat insomnia, anxiety, rashes, mood disorders, and dementia. Most likely he is using it as an antihistamine as this is still the most common use for the drug.

It's mainly used for infections, sores, and open wounds. It helps to clean and prevent infections. A little bit put into a wound will thoroughly clean it. It's a common drug that can be bought over the counter.

There are many uses for Hydroxyzine Pam. It is an antihistamine, often used for allergic reactions. It can also be used for treating other symptoms such as insomnia, itching, anxiety, rashes, mood disorders, and dementia. All antihistamines have a sedative effect, causing drowsiness and calming qualities, making it useful in treating all these symptoms.

This is a slang term for hydroxyzine. This medicine can be used to treat nausea and vomiting or anxiety and tension.

Hydroxyz pam is a sedative to treat anxiety, itching, insomnia, rashes, nervousness, mood disorders and dementia. It is also sometimes prescribed to help narcotics work more effectively. It was initially used as an antihistamine, but that use is less common now. Sometimes it is used as a nausea reducer. Use it up to 3 times a day.

It is a lot like benadryl so it can be used for allergies or itching. It can also be used as an antodepressent. Ask your husband why he is taking it could just be something simple.
