Does buspar cause weight gain or weight loss?

Hi! It can go either way but buspirone is considered pretty neutral so changes in weight are uncommon:

"Metabolic
Uncommon (0.1% to 1% of users): Weight gain, weight loss"

I've had no appetite since taking Buspar for over a year and a half

Never been on it so I can’t say, sorry.

I started taking 5mg twice daily about a month ago and have noticed that I am eating more than usual. I don’t think I necessarily feel more hungry but when I do eat, I definitely eat more than I usually do and have gained 2 lbs recently. I believe Buspar is decreasing my ability to feel satiated.
