I've been taking 3.75 - 5mg of Buspar for 2-3 weeks now and the side effects have pretty much dissipated. I have a friends birthday this weekend and I am wondering how long after taking a dose of Buspar is it safe to Drink Alcohol without interaction. Is it when it passes through the liver or when it leaves the brain?
I know alcohol isn't recommended when you have anxiety but I am asking specifically around the interaction of buspar and Alcohol together. Also what is considered "moderate" drinking?
I know this is old but I wanted to add to it. The FDA site and some government ran sites say that buspar combined with alcohol doesn't increase the sedation effects of alcohol but to avoid the use of both. That being said I'm day 6 on buspar and day 4 I had 3 glasses of wine and felt no different then if I just had the wine .
