Has anyone taken Buspirone/Buspar?

Hello everyone,

I was recently diagnosed with GAD and my doctor prescribed me buspirone 7.5mg 2x a day, I've taken it for about 3 weeks but I haven't noticed any changes in my anxiety

What i have noticed is more frequent headaches and chest tightness, nausea 😞

Not sure if its anxiety thats giving me these symptoms or the medication

  • Hi moni85, Buspirone (Buspar) is a different type of antianxiety drug. Supposedly not as addicting and a little milder acting. I would talk with your doctor about the side effects you are experiencing. It takes a lot of trial and error in regards to finding the right med as well as the right dose. Don't suffer in silence, let your doctor or therapist know. I wish you well. Stay positive

  • Thank you for your reply 😊
