Anyone have any experience using hydroxyzine (also called Atarax) to help with the comfort level during WD or more specifically during a jump?

Has anyone heard of this being prescribed for these reasons?

If anyone has input, would love to hear about it, as I'm sitting on quite a handful of these things and don't want them to go to waste if they can actually help me during my jump!

Thanks!!
Fishyyy

fishy,

I've not heard of this drug mentioned on this forum but you can always do a search with the button up top this page. WebMD may be of some help but not with withdrawal from Buprenorphine and Atarax.

Your other thread was a duplicate of this one in the Q&A section so I deleted it. You only need one section to post this question and this is the best fit.

By me posting back to you it also bumps up your thread so maybe it'll be read by more people and you'll get a response.

Just do your research.

Years ago Atarax was marketed as an antihistamine for allergies (similar action as Benadryl) and Vistaril for anxiety. Both are hydroxyzine. Safer than a benzo and is not a controlled substance. We use it as part of our detox protocol for opioids along with catapres, Imodium, ibuprofen and pepto bismol. Dosing is 25-50 mg every 4 hours, up to 100 mg every 600 hours. It can make you sleepy, don't drive or sign contracts while taking it.
