Jul 1, 2011 (Started Jan 01, 2009)

  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for anxious mood)
  • Side effects
    Severe (drowsiness)
  • Adherence
    Never taken as prescribed
  • Burden
    Very hard to take
Dosage: 400 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I finally had to stop taking the Vistaril as the tiredness just wouldn't go away and I hated being even more tired than I already was. I was really dragging and I addressed this to my psychiatrist. Dr. O and I talked about my anxiety over the course of some visits and he pointed out some triggers that I could avoid and we agreed that I could stop taking it. Any other medication would react too negatively with my other meds so I decided that I would handle my anxiety by taking a few big, deep breaths when I felt real stressed and this would help calm me better than any pill could.
Cost: < $25 monthly
