  • Yes, I was prescribed this after Paxil gave me horrible headaches. It made me horribly drowsy, in fact I believe another popular use for it is to help a person sleep. I could be wrong, but I think that's what I was told.

  • I always took it for itching but it knocked me out. Anything with a "zine" at the end of it has been used for anxiety. Promethazine (Phenergan), Compazine, Thorazine, etc.
