I've been on BuSpar for 4 weeks. I started at 7.5mg then move up to 15mg, then to 22.5mg and am now at 30mg per day. I feel worse now than I did before I started taking it. I went in to see my dr because I was having recurring panic attacks. Now I wake up anxious all the time, I have insomnia, and I can't be alone. This isn't me. Anyone else deal with this from BuSpar? I'm scared that it's made me this way and if I go off I will be a wreck.
Just started on Buspar 10mg once a day took half of that and it made my anxiety so much worse. It also made my voice hoarse also my chest feel weird and I also was very jittery I cannot give this med, 2 to 4 weeks to start working... I need something that will work ASAP! Definitely not for me will not be taking this anymore! Jussayin
My doctor started me on Buspar 10mg twice a day about a month ago..I am so afraid of medicine, so I started out by taking 1/2 tablet twice a day.. Almost immediately I experienced headaches. I didn't associate it with the Buspar at that time. I worked myself up to 10 mg twice a day, and right away I started experiencing small panic attacks. I have had them in the past, but not for 13 years.. after a few days I had full blown, terrifying panic attacks to the point that I could not function. I called my doctor and he prescribed xanax. I knew that I could take it from past experience.. I stopped the Buspar and after 72 hours, the panic attacks were gone and I don't need to take the xanax..
Ive been on busbar for a week and two days. I had a hard time with the twice a day. So i took both dosages at night. After a week to be moved up to two whole dosages. I cant breath. I feel like im losing control of the way im breathing. My heart palpitations are crazy. Not to mention tingling in arms and fingers. You can bet im not taking them tonight. And calling the doctor on monday. Id rather deal somehow with the anxiety and panic attacks. Then to feel like im literally drowning. In my inconsistent breathing and repetitive attacks.
I have been on BuSpar for 3 months now. 10mg 2X a day. I do not feel like myself. I am shaking inside constantly. The "Racing Thoughts" have increased tremendously. I wake up in the morning and even coming out of a dead sleep I am already worrying and panicking about the day and my thoughts. I have not noticed that it is effecting my sleep, but the panic attacks start almost immediately upon waking up. I feel out of control about the way I feel. I am obsessing over EVERYTHING.
