    Hi people,is that anti histamine dangerous if using at recommended doses for condition in conjuction with alcohol,my doctor says no problems,the patient leaflet says it is advisable not to.Any experiences as to wether you can die from mixing the 2 (not for fun i might add),obviously if mixed with a benzo it can kill,but you dont hear too much about this combo....just trying to find an anti anxiety drug that wont react negatively with alcohol.

    Thanks.

    well almost all downers(benzos, alcohol, opiates ect) are synergistic. and hydroxyzine is a downer so while it won't have any weird side effects(note: swim isn't a doctor so maybe he shouldn't say that) it migh get you drunk faster, and will make you more tired. bottom line: watch your alcohol intake when taking hydroxyzine.

    NOT a good idea to mix downers. It's just asking for trouble. You might swear up and down you won't pass out, but next thing you know the sun's up. Swim just went through it with oxy and aloprozam. Luckily he was only on 10mg of oxy and was safe the next morning. But if swim's thrown into the situation, make sure the hydroxyzine has worn off by the time swim thinks about passing out.

    swicrash makes a good point. swim doesn't have as much first hand experience so while he believes you should be fine if swiy is cautious and keeps himself at small doses he should be okay, he wouldn't advise others to do it if it is too dangerous. safety first.

    Nothing wrong with hydroxzine and alcohol as long as swiy does not over do the alcohol, wouldn't worry about it if your just taking low doses 25-100mg The hydroxzine will make swim sleepy though as withl all antihistamines.
