I wanna know what this was like for other people who take similar medications. Plus I have a benzodiazepine addiction. Does it help with that as well?

Anxiety (Including GAD)

    I take hydroxyzine for anger. I take 25mg daily with 3 25mg prn. On a normal day I burn through my prn really fast. So maybe not working out so great.

    I take 3 Hydroxodine a day 25 mg each for anxiety. It doesn't help me much but it replaced me taking xanax that I'm not prescribed.

      yeah I'm trying to taper off klonopin but the struggle is real, it's mostly withdrawal symptoms and rebound anxiety at this point

        I'm not allowed them because they mix negatively with some of my other meds, but I typically have a side stash of xanax or klonopin. Sometimes I need them to really really relax

    Hydroxyzine is definitely different than Klonopin. I take 50mg 3x and then 50mg as a PRN. I found that I needed a bit of a higher dose after coming from a solid/daily dose of klonopin. It is more mild. And it's not always quick, in my experience, taking it scheduled helps more than PRN. I find it is more helpful for mild to moderate anxiety. And it is really helpful. But it's not like benzos, in my opinion. And not addicting that I know of. Coming off Klonopin is rough! But it will get easier after the withdrawal goes away. But I won't lie, or can take a few weeks.

      oh I've definitely gone through a week or two of withdrawal but I'm finally ready to taper as much as I can

    it could help alleviate some of the anxiety caused by withdrawals, and possibly some of the physical symptoms. i was originally prescribed hydroxyzine for panic attacks and it didn't help, but i just started taking it twice daily and i've noticed less overall anxiety with it.
