 4  anxiety, panic attacks The first two weeks were the worst for side effects. Increase in anxiety and feelings of dread, dizziness, nausea and feelings of electric shock in my ears and back of my head. I pressed on through the side effects because my doctor assured me they would subside. After two weeks, I notice a difference. I'm much calmer, I sleep great, I feel more level (decrease in mood swings) and zero panic attacks. I have occasional feelings of dizziness and nausea, but not to often. I've noticed I cannot eat as much as before (I feel full much quicker and tend to feel nauseous if I overeat). Also, whenI drink alcohol (I'm a social drinker), I've noticed I can only drink about 1 or 2 drinks before I start to feel nauseous. Before, I couldd have 4-5 drinks with no problems. F 40 2 months

 3  Anxiety Buspar seemed to help with my anxiety for the first few months but I've been on it for a while now. I don't know if you can build up a resistance to this drug but it doesn't do much for me anymore. The weight gain has been the worst part. I've gotten soooo depressed over it. I stopped taking it cold turkey about a week ago and have lost 5lbs this week. It's very frustrating that the medications that help you can also hurt you. Good luck to everyone on this medication.

 4  Anxiety, Panic Attacks I experienced a lot of the same side effects others have mentioned: nausea, dizziness, lethargy... and the first couple of weeks on this medicine were pretty intense with those side effects, but please STICK WITH IT, they go away. I will say that this drug is strange because every now and then I will take one and feel dizzy or nauseated, but 95% of the time I don't experience any side effects now. I have pinned the occasional side effect down to screwing up my dosage routine (waiting too long between doses, or too soon) and/or taking it on an empty stomach and then not eating afterwards. I went from 10mg 3x a day to 15mg 3x a day and decided to go back down to 10. I did seem to notice the nausea more at 15mg. Try to give it 3 weeks for it to be fully effective and for the side effects to wane. M 31 2 years

 5  Anxiety Maybe a little nervousness at first but I titrated slowly I am an extreme sufferer of anxiety. The kind that comes across in neurotic behaviors, irritability, and mild OCD behaviors. Let's put it this way... You would just think I am very hyper and silly upon meeting me. On the inside I am experiencing very uncomfortable anxiety that I have learned to accept as my truth and my fate. I have taken many other medications... Effexor, Prozac, celexa, Wellbutrin, Ativan, nuerontin, topamax, trazadone, halcyon, desipramine,...over a period of 20 years. This is the first medication that I've taken that has calmed... Eliminated my anxiety, without doping me to sleep. I have read ratings and opinions on this website for years and have used this forum as a deciding factor on whether or not to try a medication. All I can say is that I am experiencing a side of myself I never new possible. I take on tasks without the urgency to finish and move on to the next thing ASAP. I almost feel like I am able to experience the present moment just a little bit. I've lived my life in the future and the past and I feel as though I may be able to slow down enough to stop and smell..... Really smell the roses... F 41 30 days

 5  Anxiety minor dizziness after taking, occasional muscle twitches, increased hunger after doses (minor weight gain). These side effects were extremely mild compared to the other medications I have tried. Looking back those first few weeks were pretty "scary", lots of tingling waves going through my body. I was in the midst of serious anxiety, could barely leave the house. I had tried Paxil, and the horrible "brain zaps" I got from those few weeks were hell. My doc was skeptical Buspar would even work for me, and he prescribed Xanax .50 with it as he did with the Paxil, but unlike with the Paxil, I rarely had to augment the Buspar with Xanax. In the 13+ years I've been on Buspar, I've been prescribed Celexa, Lexapro, and Xanax. Buspar without a doubt has been the most tolerable and pleasant. It keeps me "right in the middle", not too up or down, not too anxious or angry. I haven't tried to stop taking it, and my doc says it's an "orphan drug" so they will never improve it. It supposedly isn't meant to be taken long term, and I've read "articles" where some people actually think it is a placebo. I can tell you it saved my life, it very gradually dulled the sharp edges of anxiety that were ruining my life. Please give this one time, a month or longer is right, less than a few weeks is not. It's a "slow burner" Also, last year I started talking to a therapist twice a month, and in my newfound wisdom, I recognize I should've started doing that too 13 years ago. It's never too late, never ever ever give up. You only understand anxiety/panic if you have experienced it. It also helps that it is generic and very M 38 13 years

 4  Anxiety, irritability and anger So far I am pretty satisfied with buspar. The first few times I took it I did experience intense excitement along with drowsiness. Sometimes shortly after I take a pill I do notice a fuzzy feeling in my head, but the longer I've been on it the less intense it is. I have noticed a slight change in my mood so far. Although I still get irritated at small things, it feels like there's a wall there now that prevents me from exploding into a rage. I like the fact it doesn't make me feel weird or emotionless. I feel normal, no problems with sleep or any other side effects. F 26 6 days

 5  PMS, Tension, Stress, OCD Some spaciness, "dumbed down" feeling, quietness (didn't have much to say, introverted), sedation. I have NEVER taken a drug before! I am one of those that hates taking an aspirin when I have a headache. However, after too many years of "self-medicating" my GAD with emotional stress eating and having the extra lbs to prove it, I did lots of research and settled on Buspar w/ my doc. The first script was for 10 mg once a day which I split into AM/PM doses- that was by teva. My first week I had insomnia and felt wired/high. Then it settled down and I was beginning to relax but still felt "wired". It all changed when after 1 month I had a follow up w/ Doc and asked for 5mg doses, so I wouldn't have to cut them. That manuf was different. What a difference! This 5 mg dose is exactly what I wanted! I am relaxed all the time. No PMS. I fell sedated, but functional- which I like. I do feel a bit "dumb", spacey, and I can find myself staring at something in a dream state at times. Also, I have lost all ability to orgasm, however, I still desire and enjoy sex. I am too relaxed and happy to care about not being to orgasm. I am completely passive about almost all things- I used to be a type A about all things. I take 5mg 2 x/day. I gave my hubby a few pills, if I seem irritable at all (maybe one day at that time of the month), he encourages me to take an extra dose that day to "take the edge off". Those 3 dose days (very few) I am a bit more sedated and quiet than I'd like, but it is for the best. I find I get a boost in effect for a week or so a F 37 3 months

 5  PTSD Short term memory loss, increased appetite-VERY high anxiety, heart palpitations, and nausea until my body adjusted. I highly recommend sticking with this drug until the initial high anxiety wears off. It's changed my life. I'm much more calm, my nightmares have decreased dramatically, and I can go out in public alone. I ignore the increased appetite, because I know it's not real hunger, so I haven't gained any weight. And the short term memory loss is a small price to pay. I would recommend this to anyone suffering from PTSD-at least give it a try. F 45 8 months

 1  PTSD Absolutely horrible. Aside from the jolts and random sporadic movements of all limbs that were violent enough to wake me from a dead sleep, my main issue with buspar was that even though it seemed to wildly increase my appetite, I could not eat because of the nausea! After forcing myself to eat, I'd throw up. This contributed to a very unhealthy weight loss, which had already started to occur due to my condition at the time. Buspar seemed to amplify every negative feeling. I've been on several different medications before, but never was I as violent or angry as I was while on this "medication." After suicidal thoughts started to flood my head, and I dropped to 81 pounds, I told my doctor I would no longer take any medication that would make me hungry yet would not allow me to eat. I've since been off all medications now for two and a half years... and I've never felt better. F 23 4 months

 5  BoostEnergy/anxiety/mild depression Short-term memory loss, slight headache. I went to the Dr. for mild/seasonal depression, high anxiety, and chronic low energy. The low energy has not been dealt with and on-going for about 2-3 years. The Dr. tried Escitalopram 10 mg, but drowsiness, dry mouth, trouble sleeping, confusion, and muscle weakness was bad. Dr. tried Buspar 15 mg. but start with 5mg in A.M. and 5 mg. P.M. I have started to do 10 mg. A.M. and 5 mg in the PM, which seems to be working well. The morning seems to be more energized, happier, and outgoing. Taking more in the evening made me more tired, so I do the 5 mg. I happy with the results in the energy boost, which has helped the mild-depression, but the anxiety has lessoned. I think this is the right dose and medicaiton for my needs. F 39 15 days

 1  gad, panic attacks I was getting intense "brain zaps" sporadically. I developed a tension headache to the point of the muscles between my eyebrows being sensitive to touch as if they were bruised. Mild nausea, not too bad if you eat with the pill. OVRERWHELMING sadness/depression and bouts of sobbing for no specific reason. I didn't feel like myself... I'd be so easily irritated or angered that I'd snap on people I loved. It made me VERY sensitive to what others said, even if it was normal conversation I'd start taking things personally. Also, I have a pretty large bladder, but in the last week or so I've had increased frequency of urination. F 19 3 weeks

 5  PTSD Heart palpitations, short term memory loss, increased anxiety the first two weeks. Very vivid dreams. I started taking 5mg 2 x a day and experienced constant heart palpitations and a feeling of fogginess I couldn't shake. My Dr. suggested I go up to 10mg 2 x a day-after a few days of this I experienced what I like to call loss of impulse control-after having a few drinks in a nightclub I punched a woman in the face for disrespecting me. I went back down to 5mg 2 x a day, and have had no problems since. My anxiety is at a record low, I sleep through the night, I wake up in the morning singing-this medication changed my life. I highly recommend it to those suffering from PTSD. I do have some short term memory loss and very vivid dreams, but I am happy than I have ever been. A fair trade! F 44 90 days

 3  Anxiety, Post Traumatic Stress Momentary, but extreme sensation of dizziness, to the point of feeling I could fall, especially sitting at my computer. Strange lucid dreams. Headache. Nausea. Hot flashes. insomnia, long term. I have been taking this medication to wean myself off of Lorazapam, and it did help for a while, but now it seems I have built a tolerance to it. I went back to my doctor and she told me to go back to Lorazapam, and maybe even take one Buspar and one Lorazapam alternatively (I'm looking for another Dr. by the way). But I do feel that Buspar lost it's ability to help after a while, so if you're taking it be prepared that it is not a forever kind of remedy. F 54 1 years

 5  complex post traumatic stress disor None It's a miracle. Intrusive thoughts are stopped cold, I can actually feel it working. I was able to cut back on the Xanax I was taking and will eventually eliminate it, in the future. I suffer from (diagnosed) cptsd due to extreme trauma and was at a point where I could barely function and was actually considering the possibility that I would not be able to continue living this way. It can't erase the cause of this horror in my life, but so far it has certainly eased the effects. F 65 7 days

 1  GAD, panic This was prescribed to me by my doc to wean off of Effexor. At first this drug was awesome... Helped my anxiety, I was great. About 4 months ago I noticed my anxiety increasing. 2 months ago started with racing troublesome thoughts horrible Unspeakable thoughts that i would never normally have. I was also taking ambien at the time. I have since stopped. I have started to taper off these last few days and have started to feel slightly better... This was a horrible experience and I will never take another drug that alters brain chemicals again. F 32 7 months
