I must need this med because I am actually afraid to take this medicine for anxiety !! I just worry about even taking medicine for worrying crazy isn't it??
The most common side effects of BuSpar are dizziness, drowsiness, headache and nausea. It is more likely that the anxiety that you are experiencing will cause high blood pressure than this medicine. In fact, as you know, this medicine should help this problem ultimately. I would trust the doctor and give it a try.
I have high blood pressure along with Depression, OCD and big time Anxiety. I currently take (generic) Buspar 20mg 3x day for a total of 60mg per day. My blood pressure did go up a bit so I was also given Amlodipine 5mg 1x day and now my blood pressure is normal. Thank goodness SOMETHING about me is normal! (my blood pressure that is)
