Can you take Lorazepam for sleep and Buspar for anziety together?Will the Lorazepam counteract the Buspar's effectiveness.
There does not seem to be an interactions with the two meds. But everyone reaction can be different. Buspar takes a few weeks to build up in your system. They are both for anxiety. Lorazepam is usually given on a as need bases or temporarily, as you can build a tolerance and dependence on it over time. Buspar is a funny med. It can work for some but not for others. If you have been the Buspar for a while and find it is not effective talk to your doctor about options.
Hope it all works out for you.
123JERRIE; I do agree with Janie and there is no interaction with taking these two medications together Follow the direction on the bottles but I would like to give you something to think about when the anxiety is really bad to use the Lorazepam and for now take the Buspar as directed Buspar is a newer drug compared to many anxiety medications but it helps or it does not for most people and sometime many people take a little less than what the bottle says and find it works better for the anxiety but in your case I would recommend you take what you can because Buspar also has like the serotonin medication and does help with the depression but you do have to take it regularly at least until you see the doctor. Hope this all make good enough sense but if you have any questions please let us know.
