Very helpful for hives and anxiety and more

I have had this medicine used on me over the years for a variety of uses, from migraine/nausea to hives and for general anxiety. I find it to be one of the most versatile drugs on hand.

I sometimes will take this along with a Klonopin for faster relief since the Klonopin takes a couple of hours to really kick in.

The only downside is marked drowsiness -- which sometimes can be a most welcome side effect. This is also a strong antihistamine so one may get dry mouth and the typical dried out nose feeling as well. This is easily relieved by drinking more water and using saline nose drops.
