BuSpar is made by: Bristol-Myers Squibb Company. Princeton, NJ 08543 USA

Generic BuSpar is made made by the following companies: Actavis Towata; Ethex Corporation; Ivax Pharmaceuticals; Major Pharmaceuticals;
Mylan Pharmaceuticals; Par Pharmaceutical; Ranbaxy Pharmaceuticals; Teva Pharmaceuticals; UDL Laboratories; Watson Pharmaceuticals.

However please double check with the pharmacist/doc who prescribed the med., hope the info helps?

You say Buspar is made by Bristol Myers Company. If they are still making it, why can't I get it from any Pharmacy and their Drug Distributors are saying that Name Brand Buspar is not available for them to order. Is Bristol Myers still making any dosage of Buspar and if so, how does someone who has been on it for 15 years obtain it now? This is really a difficult situation as I am going to have to use the Generic version and it does not work nearly as well as name brand does. I really need some sound advise asap.

Generally there is no difference between the branded & generic med, please do talk to the doc/pharmacist who prescribed the med.

A generic is available when the patent has run out of the branded med.
