I am currently taking Zoloft 200 once a day for anxiety and depression and 0.5 Xanax as needed.
My doctor prescribed me Buspirone two weeks ago because she wants me to get off the Xanax. I am taking 1/2 a tablet twice a day and am experiencing extreme tiredness and can’t make myself get off the couch. I have no energy or willpower to get active, am constantly yawning and feel like I need to nap. I also came down with the flu and lost my dear cat and grandfather in the past two weeks, so I am wondering if the extreme fatigue and brain fog is caused by the new medicine or if this is caused by emotional stress or being physically ill.
I have never experienced anything like this before, not after being sick or in phases of high anxiety. My depression is very mild and usually triggered by anxiety and I have never spent a day on the couch doing nothing in my entire life.
Of course my doc is out of the office over the holidays, so I can’t ask her.
Has anyone experienced these side effects on Buspirone and if yes: will it get better after a while?
