I’ve mentioned in another thread that my psychiatrist cut Xanax dosage in half. That was three months ago. This past week at my appointment he said he wants me off of Xanax and ordered vistaril for anxiety and sleep. I dug back in my brain and remembered from nursing school that vistaril is used for hives/rashes/itching. It’s an antihistamine! Why can’t I try Benadryl instead of a Rx? Just wondering.
