... tells me weather or not it is a narcotic or non-narcotic medication. My husband says its not a narcotic, and before confronting my son I'd like to go in with all the facts! Please any information would be great!
Buspirone isn't usually an abused medication, as the previous person posted. It's not a narcotic but it is used as an antianxiety med and also a sedative. I would talk with your son first before going into any lengthy discussion about the med... namely why he has it. If he's trying drugs for the first time, ask him what the person he got it from told him it would do... someone may have just sold it to him and fed him a line of crap about the medication. For your own information, it can cause a lot of minor unpleasantries: dizziness, headaches, insomnia, depression, light-headedness, confusion, tremors, numbness, nightmares, heart palpitations, nausea, diarrhea, hyperventilation, and muscle pain/cramps. As the previous person said, it doesn't do much that anybody would want to abuse it for.
Hope this helps you out. Hopefully, your son can gain some insight about the dangers/risks involved with trying drugs, especially if you don't know what they're for or what they'll do. If you have any other questions, feel free to post. I don't know how old your son is, but maybe you can chalk this up as a learning experience. Good luck.
