I just wanted to warn people to be careful when taking Vistaril, including its generic form (Hydroxyzine). The first two nights I took it, everything was absolutely fine.

Earlier today I took the generic form of Vistaril (Hydroxyzine), in combination with some Advil Liquigels. The amount was 25mg.

It took a few hours, but I began to feel very strange when standing. It started with a rather intense headache (only when standing), dizziness (while standing), a tiny bit of blurred vision (no dilation of pupils), and tingling in my hands and feet.

I consulted a physician who told me that taking Vistaril or its generic form can affect a person like this during the day. Be careful when taking this drug during the day.

This medication was prescribed to me this week to help me sleep better during a bronchial illness. It made me sleepy, but did not keep me asleep.

Just be careful. I missed an important errand because I was unable to drive, and 8 hours later I'm still waiting for the effects to wear off.
