Buspirone (Buspar) Side Effects & Dosage

How Is BuSpar Used as an Anxiety Treatment?

Buspirone is a medication that is used for the treatment of anxiety. Its mechanism of action is not clearly understood but may involve effects on neurotransmitters, chemicals that nerves use to communicate with one another. Serotonin and dopamine are two of these neurotransmitters.

Buspirone may work by stimulating serotonin type 1A receptors on nerves, thereby altering the chemical messages that nerves receive. It also has minor effects on dopamine receptors but this does not contribute much to its action.

Un medications for anxiety of the benzodiazepine class, for example, diazepam (Valium), lorazepam (Ativan), alprazolam (Xanax), and clonazepam (Klonopin), buspirone does not cause sedation.

What are the uses for buspirone?

Buspirone is used for the management of anxiety disorders or for the short-term relief of the symptoms of anxiety. Buspirone is especially effective in persons with generalized anxiety of a limited or moderate degree. It is not very effective in persons with severe anxiety, panic disorders, or obsessive-compulsive disorders.

Buspirone also may help improve symptoms of depression in patients with generalized anxiety disorder.

What are the side effects of buspirone?

The most common side effects associated with buspirone are:

Other important but less frequent side effects include

  • unsteady gait,
  • diarrhea,
  • excitement,
  • weakness,
  • hostility,
  • skin rash, and
  • tremors.

What is the dosage for buspirone?

The usual starting adult dose is 10-15 mg daily given in 2 or 3 doses. The dose may be increased by 5 mg every 2 to 4 days until an effective dose is found.

The maximum adult dose is 60 mg daily, but most patients respond to 15-30 mg daily. Although food increases the amount of buspirone that is absorbed, the importance of this effect is not clear.

Buspirone can be taken with or without food but preferably on a consistent basis.

Which drugs or supplements interact with buspirone?

Buspirone may interact with drugs called monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors, such as isocarboxazid (Marplan), phenelzine (Nardil), tranylcypromine (Parnate), and procarbazine (Matulane) which are used in psychiatric disorders.

The use of buspirone with these drugs can cause increased blood pressure. A similar reaction may occur if buspirone is combined with linezolid (Zyvox), an antibiotic that is also an MAO inhibitor.

The combination of buspirone and trazodone (Desyrel), an antidepressant, may cause abnormal liver enzymes in the blood.

The combination of buspirone and warfarin (Coumadin), a blood thinner, may accentuate the effects of warfarin and increase the risk of bleeding. Patients taking buspirone should not drink grapefruit juice, since the juice (even well after a dose of buspirone is taken) can increase the amount of buspirone in the blood, possibly leading to side effects.

Inactivation and removal of buspirone is mediated by liver enzymes.

Drugs (for example, erythromycin, itraconazole [Sporanox], nefazodone [Serzone]) that inhibit these liver enzyme increase blood concentrations of buspirone, and drugs (for example, rifampin) that enhance these enzymes decrease blood concentrations of buspirone. Increased blood concentrations may increase side effects while decreased blood concentrations may reduce efficacy.

Panic attacks are repeated attacks of fear that can last for several minutes. See Answer

Is buspirone safe to take if I'm pregnant or breastfeeding?

  • There are no adequate studies of buspirone in pregnant women.
  • It is not known if buspirone is secreted in human breast milk. Because buspirone is secreted in the breast milk of animals, however, it should not be used by women who are nursing infants.

How should I keep buspirone stored?

Tablets should be kept at room temperature, less than 30 C (86 F).

Buspirone is available as a generic drug, by prescription only.

The FDA approved buspirone in September, 1986.

How Is BuSpar Used as an Anxiety Treatment?

Finding the right medication to manage anxiety and panic attacks is a task many people must see through to the end before they have any relief. Anxiety affects an estimated 40 million adults in the U.S. age 18 or older, according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA), and mental disorders involving anxiety are also among the most common.

Panic disorders are also common, as they affect 6 million adults, or 2.7 percent of the U.S. population, ADAA reports. Women are said to be twice as ly to be affected as men.

Buspirone, which is widely recognized by its discontinued brand name BuSpar, is an antianxiety medication that is prescribed to help people manage an anxiety disorder. The medication helps treat the symptoms of anxiety by depressing the central nervous system without the potent effects of other medications, such as benzodiazepines, which have a higher risk of dependence and addiction.

The medication comes in tablet form and can be taken orally two or three times daily with or without food. Users are advised to pick one way to take the medication and do it consistently to ensure the medication is absorbed properly. The Mayo Clinic writes, “Buspirone is thought to work by decreasing the amount and actions of a chemical known as serotonin in certain parts of the brain.”

Buspirone And Anxiety Treatment

If you have anxiety, you may know that buspirone has been used to treat anxiety disorders, but you also might be wondering if it is effective. GoodRx writes that health care providers can prescribe buspirone in addition to an antidepressant to treat generalized anxiety disorder (GAD).

That antidepressant can be either a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) or a serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI). It has been found that buspirone can help enhance the effects of an antidepressant drug.

Buspirone can also be used alone for people who do not respond well to antidepressants or experience unwanted side effects.

Buspirone And Panic Attacks

Anxiety and panic attacks are often thought of being the same or similar, but they aren’t. “Panic attacks come on suddenly and involve intense and often overwhelming fear,” Healthline explains. “They’re accompanied by frightening physical symptoms, such as a racing heartbeat, shortness of breath, or nausea.”

Healthline also notes that the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) recognizes panic attacks, but it doesn’t recognize anxiety attacks. Instead, it defines anxiety as a feature of several psychiatric disorders. It is possible to experience anxiety and have a panic attack at the same time.

If you are considering taking buspirone to stop panic attacks, some research suggests it remains unresolved whether it’s effective or not. An online search of different users’ experiences with the medication suggests that its effectiveness depends on how it affects the person individually. How the drug affects one person may differ from how it affects another.

Some users have found that buspirone aggravated their condition. “Because of Buspirone side [effects] such as increased heart beat in which increased my anxiety significantly,” writes Drugs.

com forum user “Roscoe,” who was taking buspirone on prescription. Some of these side effects might even be rare, as was in the case of Roscoe’s situation.

If you experience side effects such as these, you should report them to your doctor right away.

Panic attacks can happen unexpectedly after a person has experienced an external stressor, such as phobia, or they can happen unexpectedly with no clear cause.
