I was prescribed Atarax for a severe outbreak of hives after a knee replacement (maybe no connection between those two, who knows) , which lasted in fact for over a year. When the hives became very severe, I was given a brief dose of steroids for just a few weeks which knocked them on the head, but the only thing (and we tried a lot of things) which helped to keep the hives at bay was Atarax. It makes you slightly sleepy the next day, but not in a major way. I only took a very small dose, but it worked well.

Atarax (hydroxyzine) reduces activity in the central nervous system. It also acts as an antihistamine that reduces the natural chemical histamine in the body. Histamine can produce symptoms of sneezing and runny nose, or hives on the skin. Atarax is used as a sedative to treat anxiety and tension. It is also used together with other medications given for anesthesia. Atarax is also used to treat allergic skin reactions such as hives or contact dermatitis.
