Now keep in mind that I have taken a lot of drugs in my 42 years. Dec 20, 3. Using them with hydrocodone makes the high last a lot longer. Yeah, I hope you're right about getting used to it. I've only been taking hydroxyzine for about a month. This was observed more in female patients, who also had greater hypnotic response.

How does hydroxyzine potentiate opioids? Histamine has excitatory effects; opioids induce histamine release, which tends to attenuate their sedative and euphoric effects. Is the mechanism known?
First its anti-histamine effect increase sedation and counter the histamine release of opioids ichiness-nausea which can be distasteful. Somnolence with or without vivid dreams or nightmares may occur in users with antihistamine sensitivities in combination with other CNS depressants.
