anyone use hydroxyzine?

#1
Atarax I think is the brand name. It is an anti histamine sometimes used to treat anxiety. I just got this prescribed by a psychiatrist. I want something that works quickly to help keep blushing and sa down. Has anyone used this? I'm going to test it this weekend and push myself into some social situations that normally make me uncomfortable.

I used hydroxyzine for a while but it did nothing. it might help you but it didn't do a thing for me. I was already on a pill called Effexor for social anxiety which is helping and then they put me on hydroxyzine for GAD but wasn't working.

Thanks ff5fan19 foe the feedback. I don't believe it's going to help me I did some research and it sounds like it's more for relaxing general anxiety but I need something to prevent panic particularly before a social event. I was thinking of maybe trying a beta blocker
