      I do take it for night time and it does work. As for bad days, it’s not too effective but it does really help with sleep issues

      I take hydroxyzine at bed time bc it makes me super drowsy and sleepy. I tried using it during school, and I felt like I could lay down and sleep in the hallway.

        @Green_Goblin yes, one day I was working at home took a Hydroxyzine and had to lie down and sleep because I was so drowsy. I was not productive for that day because of how much I slept unfortunately. Different for everyone~

      I have this prescribed as well. My PCP originally passed it as an alternative to Xanax for my panic attacks/anxiety. The pros are that it last for 8hrs, I believe, and I don't feel too out of it while taking. It's a more gradual effect... I like to use this on days where I can tell I'm overstimulated and overwhelmed to irritation. It helps me keep from letting my anxiety or panic cause me to snap or lash out.

      I love it! It does make me sleepy as well. Pretty much the same as what @AuroraRose said!

        @Belugabear yea I heard it makes u sleepy which is why my doc said for my bad days

      I have this and it helps me personally, but it does make me drowsy and sometimes ill use it if I can't sleep - otherwise I'll use it when I feel a panic attack coming or after. It calms me enough to get through, but it's not going to do anything too strong like completely numb you, but I'm only at 25mg
