I have been on Buspirone for about 3 months and my appetite has decreased a lot and am losing weight. I had no appetite change before taking it
Hi, Lexity! These are uncommon side effects with buspirone, but a small percentage of people will experience them:
Uncommon (0.1% to 1%): Weight gain, weight loss"
Uncommon (0.1% to 1%): Anorexia"
I'd let your doctor know as losing more than 5% of your usual body weight is considered clinically significant.
Best regards, Wildcat
