Is it safe to take hydroxyzine with olanzapine?

they are not contraindicated but hydroxyzine is a pretty strong antihistamine and and olanzapine has pretty strong antihistamine and anticholinergic properties so i dont know if it would be too much antihistamine effects if taken together.

not asking for medical advice just wondering if it seems like itd be a bad idea because im prescribed both. i took hydroxyzine when i was on paliperidone but havent taken it since ive gone back on olanzapine

If you are prescribed both, I would assume that your doc has taken all this into consideration.

If they are contraindicated you should be wary of any signs of serious effects. It might be allright to take them together, but you can’t be sure. Listen to what your body and brain tells you.
