I have been taking Buspirone 15mg 2 tabs twice a day for a long time. But since last October I have been experiencing insomnia. I will go to sleep for 6-6.5hrs and then wake up fully alert. It will take me about an hour to fall back asleep. This is driving me crazy. I was wondering if this has happened to anyone else (after having taken the med for awhile.)? My prescriber says that insomnia mostly occurs when a patient is just beginning to take this med and it shouldn’t be because of this med. But I’m not so sure and want to try discontinuing this drug to see if my sleep improves. Has this happened to anyone else??? Did you stop the med? Did your sleep return to normal?
