Buspar Side Effects: What can I expect? 

 

Buspar side effects overview: 

busbar side effectsBuspar side effects cannot really be anticipated, but if any occur or increase in intensity you should notify your physician immediately.  If you will be taking this anti anxiety medicine for a long period of time, your doctor will need to check regularly for its effectiveness as well as for the buspar side effects. Buspar may make some people feel dizzy, lightheaded, drowsy or less alert than normal.  You should make sure that you know how you react to this medicine before driving, operating machinery or any other activities which require alertness and concentration. Below are some of the major busbar side effects.

Buspar side effects - General: 

Along with the wanted effects, this anti anxiety medicine will cause some related side effects.  Although not all of these side effects may occur, if they do, you should seek medical attention immediately. 

Buspar side effects - Rare: 

Chest pain; confusion; fast or pounding heartbeat; fever; lack of coordination; mental depression; muscle weakness; numbness, tingling, pain, weakness in hands or feet; skin rash or hives; stiffness of arms or legs; sore throat; uncontrolled movements of the body. 

Other buspar side effects may occur that usually do not need medical attention.  These side effects may go away during your treatment as your body adjusts to the medicine.  However, you should check with your physician if any of the following side effects continue or become bothersome: 

 

More common buspar side effects: 

Dizziness or lightheadedness, especially when getting up from a sitting or lying position; headache; nausea; restlessness or excitement 

Less common or rare buspar side effects: 

Blurred vision; sweating; decreased concentration; diarrhea; drowsiness (more common with doses of more than 20 mg per day); dryness of the mouth; muscle pain, spasms, cramps or stiffness; ringing in the ears; trouble in sleeping, nightmares, or vivid dreams; unusual tiredness or weakness 

Other buspar side effects not listed above may also occur in some individuals, however, if you notice any other effects you should check with your doctor immediately. 

Symptoms of buspar overdose: 

Dizziness or lightheadedness; drowsiness (severe) or loss of consciousness; stomach upset, including nausea or vomiting; very small pupils in the eyes 

Any medication taken in excess of the recommended dosage can have very serious side effects. If you suspect a busbar overdose you should seek medical attention immediately. 

Summary of buspar side effects: 

There are fewer buspar side effects than with some of the other anti anxiety medications.  However, if you experience any of these unwanted effects you should contact your doctor immediately.
