It actually makes me hungry, so I try to take my doses before meals. Everyone is different though. I know when my anxiety is high I have little appetite. So it’s tough with these drugs because you do not know if it’s a side effect of the medication or an issue from the anxiety. I hope this helps a little bit. I’ve been on Buspirone for almost 20 years and have had great success with it. Good luck to you.
Loss of appetite/anorexia is an uncommon side effect that affects about 1% of users. Side effects generally subside within a week or two so if you been on it longer than that you'll need to talk with your doctor for professional advice.
