How do I take hydroxyzine?

Depending on your prescription, you may be given hydroxyzine tablets, capsules or a liquid form of the medication. Take your medication exactly as prescribed. Do not take less or more of your medication without your doctor's approval. Take oral doses with a full glass of water. When taking liquid doses it's important to use a dosing spoon. Talk to your doctor about getting a proper measuring device to take your prescription. Do not use a regular teaspoon or tablespoon. Depending on its use, be prepared to take doses several times a day. Hydroxyzine also comes as an injection that is injected into a muscle. It is administered either by a healthcare professional or you may be taught to give yourself the injections.
