Generic Atarax

Now that brand-name Atarax is no longer being manufactured, only generic products are available. These come in tablet and syrup form, and are available in several different strengths. It is important to know that not all generic hydroxyzine drugs are necessarily generic Atarax; they could be the generic form of a different brand-name medication.

Generic Atarax Versus Vistaril

Sometimes, it can be difficult to know if a particular generic hydroxyzine product is a generic for Atarax or for Vistaril® (a different brand-name medication). All hydroxyzine hydrochloride tablets and syrups are generic forms of Atarax. All generic hydroxyzine pamoate products and hydroxyzine hydrochloride injections are generic versions of Vistaril.
