Tips for Tapering Atarax / hydroxyzine

Recommended Posts

JMBR

Any suggestions on tapering hydroxyzine?  I've was on 20 mg for 5 months while tapering Klonopin.   Increased the dose to 75-100  for the last 2 months in an attempt to alleviate severe insomnia.  I believe it may be making things worse. Have been off Klonopin 3.75 months.  Lots of w/d symptoms.

 

Thank you!

You could try doing 25% reductions.  However I think it would be better to do a 10% reduction and monitor your symptoms and if it you don't get any additional/increase in symptoms you might be able to reduce again after 1 week.  If symptoms worsen hold for longer.

 

Reducing by less might be better so that you can "catch" any increase in symptoms and hold at that dose if needed.
