Atarax Injection (Hydroxyzine HCL)
What is Atarax Injection (Hydroxyzine HCL) used for?
Atarax Injection (Hydroxyzine HCL) is an injectable sedating antihistamine prescribed to treat patients suffering from widespread inflammatory conditions. The medication operates by blocking the actions of enzymes in the body that cause the irritation, discomfort, and redness associated with these conditions. This makes it useful for treating eczema, nettle rash, or other similar skin conditions. Its sedative properties may make it useful for treating anxiety in adults, as well.
How should I use Atarax Injection (Hydroxyzine HCL)?
Atarax Injection (Hydroxyzine HCL) should always be used exactly as instructed by your doctor to ensure the safest and most effective results. The best regimen will be determined by your doctor based on your age, weight, current health, the condition being treated, and the severity of your symptoms. The injection should typically be performed by a trained doctor or health professional, but you may be required to perform the injection yourself in some cases. To administer the medication sterilize the needle and the injection site, collect the correct amount of medication in the syringe, and get rid of any air by holding it vertically, tapping it to move any bubbles to the top, and pressing the plunger slowly until a small amount of medication is released. The injection may then be administered into a muscle or vein. Always observe the solution prior to each use to ensure it is not cloudy or discoloured as this may indicate contamination. Ask your doctor or pharmacist any questions you have about the medicine to ensure the correct administration.
