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!
