What is dangerous Atarax?

The IRR is an affliction of the soul, and this means that the source of problems cannot be reached by medication. Yes, the drugs temporarily arrest the annoying symptoms of aggravated dystonia, but if you cancel the treatment, everything will return to its place - this truth is known to every VSD. And yet, a person needs to somehow live, do household chores, go to work and at least occasionally get enough sleep. No one will do it for us. Therefore, in some periods of life, medicines are urgently needed. And the treatment of the soul, as a rule, is constantly postponed until later.

Atarax helps with VSD at the stage of its aggravation, gives mental and physical strength to continue to live, but remember: timely access to an experienced therapist is sometimes the only chance to overcome dystonia. Moreover, any medications that change our mood and brain functions always have side effects. Even if the patient has no contraindications to taking the drug, the body's response may be unpredictable. Most often, side effects occur when violations of the indicated dosage or while taking Atarax with incompatible drugs and alcohol. These include:

  • nausea and vomiting
  • disturbances in the normal operation of the central nervous system, expressed in increased symptoms of the IRR,
  • elevated temperature
  • rapid pulse, arrhythmia and other abnormalities in the work of the heart, which are fraught with coma,
  • dry mucous membranes,
  • impaired stool
  • painful urination
  • severe headaches
  • body chills,
  • loss of coordination
  • copious sweat
  • a sharp decrease in blood pressure,
  • lethargy and lethargy.

The described side effects are not considered deadly, but still calling an ambulance would be appropriate.

How to take the drug?

Atarax in IRR is taken as follows:

  1. Teenagers - the dose is calculated according to the scheme 2 mg / 1 kg of body weight per day.
  2. Adults - from 25 to 100 mg (depending on the severity of the condition) three times a day. In rare cases, the dose is increased to 250 mg.
  3. Elderly - from 10 to 50 mg per day regardless of the severity of symptoms.

The treatment regimen is prescribed only by the doctor after the examination of the patient's health. Self-medicating is dangerous. At the beginning of treatment, you should listen to your condition and all the warning symptoms to inform the doctor.

Whether Atarax will be effective for you is impossible to predict, but there are much more positive reviews from the drug than negative ones. This means that in a difficult period of life you can really rely on this medication, but it should not be forgotten: the problems hidden inside await speedy non-drug treatment.

Atarax with neurosis, insomnia, depression, VSD. My history.

Good afternoon, dear readers! I suffer from obsessive neurosis since adolescence. The first symptoms of neurosis began to manifest in me at the age of 12. I was overcome by the fear of pollution, contagion, the fear of forgetting or losing something, obsessive thoughts, rituals, and many other equally disturbing symptoms. With age, some of them have passed, but in strong stressful situations, neurosis always makes itself felt with a new force.

Exactly a year ago, I had a severe exacerbation amid overwork and stress. The treatment of neurosis with the help of a psychotherapist did not produce the desired results. Depression and insomnia have become my faithful companions. I wanted to forget, but I could not sleep properly. Even if I managed to get some sleep, the dream was shallow, I often woke up, and in the morning I felt like a ruin. I was constantly in a state of anxiety, I was disturbed by panic attacks.

It was decided to turn to the drug treatment of neurosis. I went to a neurologist. He appointed me Mexidol to improve cerebral circulation, because I still had symptoms of vegetative-vascular dystonia caused by osteochondrosis of the thoracic spine. The second point was Atarax to improve sleep and reduce anxiety.
According to the instructions of the doctor, Atarax could only be taken by gradually increasing the dosage. I should have come to my final dose in about a week. At first I had to take half a pill for several days. From this dosage of the drug "Atarax" I did not feel any effect.

I really wanted to sleep, and I decided to take a whole. That was my BIG MISTAKE. Have you ever heard the expression "cotton feet"? So, I was a wadded ALL WHOLE. The effect caught me in the middle of the street. I barely got home. It was hard even for me to hold my head. I did not want to sleep. There was some strange feeling of detachment from the outside world. Anxiety, too, did not go away. She was, but somehow existed separately from me. She was kind of behind glass.

When such an effect of the drug passed, I nevertheless returned to the instructions for use recommended by the doctor and did not violate it anymore. Gradually increasing the dosage, I still came to the whole pill. And this time everything was all right. I began to sleep better, anxiety decreased. Atarax tablets in combination with Mexidol injections helped to reduce the frequency of headaches and improve mood. Atarax can be recommended for insomnia, but for the treatment of obsessive neurosis the drug is not quite suitable.

Atarax has side effects. I experienced severe pain in my stomach and liver. Since at the time of taking Atarax I also took the contraceptive Jes Plus, I sin on poor compatibility with Atarax. Perhaps my stomach and liver simply could not cope with such simultaneous loads. These are just my assumptions, because I had no opportunity to consult with a doctor about this. After the abolition of "Atarax" pain gone.

Summarize. In general, my opinion about Atarax can be called positive. The drug coped with its task - helped to establish a dream. Partially reduces anxiety, but with neurosis is not effective enough. Reducing the level of depression occurs due to improved sleep, the other mechanisms, in my opinion, is not affected. The drug is a tranquilizer. It should not be taken as a normal sedative. Situationally, it does not help, and can only make it worse. Atarax can be taken only on prescription and only according to the established scheme. The most important drawback that made me stop taking, I consider the reaction from my digestive system.
