I was just reaching out to see if anyone has taken Buspar and Valium together? If so any side effects? My pharmacist says it's safe to take together but I have severe anxiety and the Valium doesn't touch it so was told to add Buspar. I just don't want any bad side effects. I already have Meniere's disease and can't stand to be dizzy.
They are two different types of drugs. The buspar you should take daily, with the valium for any anxiety that still pops up. Until the buspar takes effect, you will probably need to take a fair amt of valium.
It should be fine. You might feel a little more sedation taking them together but you may not even have that. They are two different drugs that work in very different ways.
This is not so simple.
Valium is a bullet.
Buspar is a slingshot.
Valium works very strong on all GABA receptors.
Buspar has a bit of an effect on serotonin and dopamine.
Together buspar is not fully separate from Valium.
On Valium first. And adding buspar is a very high chance you with get very dizzy. Many times within a few minutes.
If you want to try it. Get 5mgs of buspar. Snap in half. Then half again. 1 quarter. If you get dizzy at all within the first hour. Then it’s not for you.
People. Please be careful in advice you give here. The data is endless on every drug. Nothing black and white.
Except Valium will calm anyone as long as their liver isn’t used to it.

I used to be on both. There were no interactions. Just be careful with benzodiazepines. Physical withdrawal is terrible. Buspar works well just takes a while to kick in. Valium helped me quite a bit. I went from having nonstop panic attacks all day to having maybe six attacks a month.
Good luck with everything!
