15 mg oral Hydroxyzine
Got prescribed Hydroxyzine 15mg pills to combat anxiety.

Around 6pm I was feeling anxious and decided to try one. Effects came up in around 30-45 minutes, and I started to feel very cloudy and drowsy. I feel the relaxation from the drug was just because I was starting to feel more and more tired.

At around 8:30pm - 9:00pm, the drowsiness was uncontrollable and I made myself go to sleep.

Around 8:00am the next day, I woke up very groggy and drowsy still, and throughout the day I had a weird feeling like I didn't feel like myself. I suppose it was from the profound drowsiness.

I wouldn't take this a lot, only in certain cases where I can't control my anxiety and it goes overboard.
