... liver disease. What should i do or know?
I found this about taking buspirone with liver problems : Use in Patients With Impaired Hepatic or Renal Function
Buspirone is metabolized by the liver and excreted by the kidneys. A pharmacokinetic study in patients with impaired hepatic or renal function demonstrated increased plasma levels and a lengthened half-life of buspirone. Therefore, the administration of BuSpar to patients with severe hepatic or renal impairment cannot be recommended (see CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY).
It also said in the information that your levels could be as much as 13 times more than someone who doesn't have any liver problems, which is why it isn't recommended.
