I am on disability and my pain doc opted out of my network, can't get in to new Doc to get a new script. My apt is set in 3 weeks. Now I have to go thru withdrawal at home by myself. Years back I saw a Dr in MD mismanaged my meds & totally had me on medication overload & he took me of a fentanyl patch with out help and no other pain meds. The withdrawal and the side effects of the patch almost killed me. I have total weaned my self to taking 30mg morphine every other day and 900mg of gabapentin for about 6 months . Quite honestly I would really not take anything but I do not know if I can take the pain that I have suffered with 10 failed back surgeries and 2 neck surgeries. (all due to a truck/car collision) Right now I don't think I have any choices. My Dr gave me Vistaril 150 3x's a day. Should I continue taking my gabapentin during this time along with the vistaril ? Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just started vistiril about 3 weeks ago, maybe4. I'm 33 and have had alot of chest pains still re occurring and they call it anxiety and panic so far. I'm not so sure the vistiril and lexapro are working cause its still just as bad as it was 4 wks ago. The vistiril does not make me or help me sleep but I have noticed that I sure am eating alot more and craving sweets alot. This is all new to me. Can I get some feed back

Use of vistaril for allergy problems as well as anxiety.
Have had horrible nightmares, as well as panic attacks. I definitely attribute to the vistaril, as I've never experienced such side effects with any other medication that I've taken.

Me too! Been tapering for 5 years. Reached 1 mg at night an AM but that was definite stopping point. Fears, nightmares, and many oher dangerous effects. But, hey decide to simply start take 10 pills per month away. Can't want to see my psychiatrist! Gonna tell her every though, dream etc I had!

ask your doctor to change it to a less-addictive one and taper the dose very slowly...
