This medication is also used as a sedative in adults and children before and after surgery when combined with other drugs. 

Atarax 10mg Tablet 25 'S is available as a tablet that is taken orally (by mouth) usually 3 to 4 times a day, with or without food or as directed by your doctor.

The dosage is determined by your age, medical condition, and treatment response. The dosage for children may also be determined by their weight. Do not use this medication in larger amounts or more frequently than prescribed.

How Does Atarax 10mg Tablet 25 'S Work:

Atarax 10mg Tablet 25 'S contains Hydroxyzine as an active ingredient. Hydroxyzine is a powerful inverse agonist of histamine H1-receptors. Inverse agonists are drugs that have a negative efficacy, meaning they actively reduce the activity of a receptor rather than just blocking it. The success of hydroxyzine in the treatment of histaminic edema, flare, and pruritus is due to inverse agonism at these receptors. 

Because hydroxyzine is not a cortical depressant, its sedative effects are most likely felt at the CNS's subcortical level. Because of its sedative qualities, it can also be used as an anxiolytic. Antiemetic efficacy is most likely secondary to off-target activity.
