- buspar, vertigo, dosage
I started taking 10mgs of Buspar 2x a day and the first dose I took was around 7pm after dinner. I was fine. The next dose I took was at 8am with breakfast, about a half hour later I felt really dizzy? Does anyone know if I should have started at 5mgs instead? anyone have the same experience?
Vanilla; Best to take it the way the doctor said, double check the bottle but if it continues to make you dizzy you can take 1/2 tablet until your system gets used to it. Normally when you first start it the first few doses may throw you off a bit or some minor side effects, But most the time they go away after you have used it for a few days. But like I said there is nothing wrong with taking less than what the doctor has prescribed but never take more without talking with the doctor. And also if the 5mg or 1/2 tablet works well for you just keep it there for some reason many people seem to like the lower doses on the Buspar. Good luck Chuck1957
Hi Vanilla: Like Chuck mentioned, some people do better at lower doses. I am one of those people. I have taken buspar for over a year. The 10mg dose started to make me get dizzy, nauseous, and headaches. The 5 mg dose alleviated all these side effects and successfully stops the anxiety.
