Hello,
Welcome to justanswer.com and thanks for your question.
Well there is moderate drug interaction between Vistaril and Lexapro .
So it is advised to avoid taking both medications together .
I suggest you to consult your doctor for further management .

I take 10mg a day of Lexapro but the Vistaril is 25mg and is needed to treat dermatitis. One was given by a dermatologist and other family physician and I wasnt sure if they should be combined
Doctor: Dr.Anil, Doctor replied 6 years ago
Hello,
Well you should not taken them together at same time .
You should take one medication in morning and one at evening .

I hope this helps

will the 25mg make me very sleepy?

Doctor: Dr.Anil, Doctor replied 6 years ago
Well drowsiness is listed side effect of Vistaril .
Although most people do not experience side effects while taking Vistaril.
If you feel any associated symptoms then your doctor may advise Claritin (loratadine) which is less drowsy .
