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..
