What is the indicated use? I know the hospital I work at uses Vistaril a lot as their go-to sleep medication (no threat of dependence/abuse). Most patients seem to like it, and I haven’t noticed anyone really complaining of any side effects.

I was giveN atarax because of a severe allergic reaction to another medication. Well, the atarax was not supposed to be taken along with something else I was taking and I had a scary psychiatric reaction. Panic attacks, paranoia, hearing voices.  It was terrifying. I was told after the fact that this is a very, very rare side effect.  But that was my experience with it. Obviously it’s on my list of allergies/intolerances.
