 1  Anxiety Please don't take this medication. It is dangerous first day I took it I felt pretty decent then got extremely worse after day 2, got depressed and suicidal and extremebrain fog, heart palpitations, extremely anxiety, headaches, irratiblity, anger, restless, made My adhd worse etc. I had to start an antidepressant because of it and 3 and a half weeks in on the ad it has only resolved my depression it has caused still suffering from anxiety headaches and brain fog induced from the buspar..I honestly feel like it has ruined my life. It seems like this medication has too short of a half life and due to it. It can cause almost immediate withdrawl symptoms after a couple of doses even if u countinue to take it. M 30 3 days

 2  Anxiety Palpitations, chest pain, flushed feeling Firstly, I don't want to blame the way I was feeling entirely on BuSpar, as I have experienced those symptoms when I wasn't taking the medication. This all makes giving a fair review difficult, but I decided to stop taking BuSpar when I had a day of palpitations and chest pain. As I write this a week later, I'm still not feeling great. For someone like myself who is highly anxious (especially about medication and health) and starts a medication that takes 2-4 weeks to work, that leaves you with a lot of time to have to wrestle your thoughts, especially about potential negative side effects. I'll be trying a different medication next, but in hindsight I would have taken a benzo for the first few days on BuSpar. M 29 2 days

 1  Mild anxiety Heart palpitations, increased heart rate , brain zaps, fatigue, tired legs, labored breathing, increasing anxiety. Wish I had never done this. Was told this would take the edge off. Quit 3 weeks ago. Withdrawal has been worse than taking this M 58 17 days

 4  Anxiety/Panic Attacks Dizziness It took about a month to notice the effect but well worth it. Had been taking fluoxetine for 7 years but I would still get panic attacks when I went out in public. This helps me feel not so nervous to drive in my car and go grocery shopping. F 46 45 days

 5  Anxiety None. Buspar is the only med that has helped with my anxiety. I think a lot of people who say otherwise didn't give it enough time, wasn't on a high enough dose, or they just want a benzo. You aren't going to feel the same as if you take a benzo- but, you have to use buspar regularly and give it a few weeks. I've found 15mg 3-4 times a day works great for my extreme anxiety. No side effects and no dependency. F 37 12 months

 4  Anxiety The first few weeks i was still having bad anxiety. My doctor increased the dose to twice a day 5mg in the morning and 5mg at night. Insomnia has been a huge side effect for me but I have also been so horny and that never used to happen. Helped my anxiety F 27 2 days
5 mg 2X D
 1  Anxiety/Panic Attacks They told me to take this crap 3 times a day. Started with 1 in morning and felt something, maybe, but took the second at lunch and it made me feel awful. Nausea, fatigue, dizziness; it almost felt like a mixture of car sickness and vertigo. I was laid out the rest of the day, will never take this again. No substitute for benzos, especially for panics. I have emphysema and been having panic attacks for years before my breathing issues started, seems ridiculous they'll give me this garbage that totally floors me but not a damn xanax. M 32 1 days
10MG 2X D
 1  Dizziness Anxiety I stuck with this Med because I was told it could take some time to reach desired effect. I will say that I maybe felt less worry at times while on it. Although during the first couple weeks my anxiety was worse. However, after several months of being on this drug it was clearly making me feel restless and causing an increase in my anxiety. Discontinuation has been no joke. Please take care when starting this drug as it may not be as easy to stop as doctors/internet may lead you to believe. I don't know why Buspirone is said to have little to no withdrawal symptoms. I have had extreme anxiety, dizziness, and fatigue since lowering my dose from 15 mg daily to 7.5 mg daily two days ago. M 32 4 months

 5  over thinking / anxiety Get a little bit sleepy right after taking it, this goes away super fast. Still pretty early in the process, but I enjoy the effects if it so far. I would say I do still over think and get anxiety but it is much easier to control and get my head back on track. M 29 10 days

 2  Gad Pressure in my head difficulty falling asleep gave me the classic SSRI FEELING that's what I was hoping to avoid.... recently been getting Xanax off the street I've been taking .25 mg of that and it works better than any other thing I've been prescribed dr won't give it to me M 35 62 days

 1  Anxiety and Panic Disorders Worsened panic attacks, lethargy Honestly, Buspar does barely anything for GAD or social anxiety, and it does jack shit for panic attacks. Benzos are the only meds that help me, and I didn't have to take anything else when I was on them. But now doctors are overreacting to some people abusing these, and they would rather just throw out different combinations of "non-addictive" drugs without any concern for side effects or lack of effectiveness. So why do they make certain drugs if doctors are going to refuse to prescribed them to the people who need them? Buspar is a very poor substitute for benzos- which anyone with severe anxiety and/or panic attacks knows are the only drugs that provide relief and allow you to live a normal life. M 35 1 years

 3  GAD The first week or 2 I felt like myself, I had no signs or symptoms of anxiety and after that was downhill, I'm always having racing thoughts with severe anxiety. I have also experienced hyperventilation at times. I would not recommend this to anyone. F 39 12 days

 1  Prevent future panic attack/anxiety Moderate heart palpitations, feeling like I'm about to faint, headache, severe diarrhea, severe nausea, jittery, sleepy This was recommended to me by my psychiatrist to start taking in addition to my Prozac I had been on. This was to hopefully prevent any future panic attacks from happening. Horrible idea. Horrible side effects. Crying because I feel so sick. Stopping this medication immediately! F 38 1 days

 1  Anxiety Dizziness, constipated one day shitting the next , kidney and lower back pain, nausea, cramped up stomach, blurred vision , vivid dreams , pissed off easily, leg aches, and made me feel stoned all the time. The stomach pain I don't see anyone talking about . It's the worse. My kidneys feel bruised and the pain moves to one side to the other. Then one time your sh*t is explosive the next time your so bloated and feel backed up and nothing come out. I do say it got rid of the anxiety . But the stomach pain and back pain ain't worth it. Plus I didn't feel like doing nothing. Like I said stoned. Just had no want to do or talk to anyone. Worse drug I've ever been on. Not only that but the doctor gives me a drug to calm my anxiety. My anxiety flares up when my guts aren't working right. I'm always thinking I'm going to get some sort of gut cancer. And she gives me this. I quit it now and starting to feel some what normal again. Stomach still a little messed up still. M 43 3 weeks

 1  anxiety lightheaded, dizziness, upset stomach, These side effects occurred within a few minutes after taking my first dose. I will not take another. The doctor did not warn me about the side effects so I was alarmed and initially thought I might be having a heart attack. Thank goodness for Google! F 73 1 days
