Frequently asked questions about buspirone

What is buspirone?

Buspirone is a prescription anti-anxiety medication. It is commonly used to treat anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), panic disorder, and depression. It can also be used to treat schizophrenia and alcohol withdrawal.

Whether you’re having trouble sleeping, feeling jittery, or experiencing a pounding heartbeat, buspirone acts on chemicals in your brain called neurotransmitters to help alleviate a range of symptoms caused by anxiety.

What is buspirone used to treat?

Buspirone is often prescribed to treat generalized anxiety disorder, a condition in which people feel abnormally worried and anxious about nothing in particular. A person who suffers from generalized anxiety disorder may have constant feelings of worry, difficulty concentrating, and an inability to relax.

Buspirone can also be used to treat panic disorder, which is characterized by the sudden onset of intense feelings of fear, which usually lasts 20 to 30 minutes. It can also treat post-traumatic stress disorder, which may include flashbacks, nightmares, and anxiety.

Buspirone may additionally be used to treat depression and schizophrenia.

How does buspirone work?

While it is not fully understood how buspirone helps alleviate anxiety, researchers believe that buspirone works by increasing the amount of serotonin in the brain. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter (a chemical used to communicate information to the brain) that regulates mood, appetite, and sleep. By increasing the amount of serotonin in your brain, buspirone is believed to alleviate symptoms of anxiety.

What are the most common side effects of buspirone?

While there are some common side effects associated with buspirone, it is important to remember that your doctor prescribed it because they believe its ability to manage and alleviate your anxiety symptoms outweighs any adverse effects it may cause.

Some common side effects that you may experience while taking buspirone include:

  • Dizziness
  • Drowsiness
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Nervousness
  • Lightheadedness
  • Restlessness
  • Blurred vision
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia

Rare but serious side effects may include tremors, muscle stiffness, and other movement difficulties. These could be signs of a rare condition known as tardive dyskinesia. If you experience any of these symptoms - as well as easy bleeding, chest pain, irregular heartbeat, or shortness of breath - contact your doctor immediately.

This is not a complete list of side effects associated with buspirone. To learn more about adverse reactions you may experience, visit the National Institutes of Health’s DailyMed webpage.

How long does it take for buspirone to work?

Buspirone is not aspirin or albuterol - you can’t expect relief within 20 or 30 minutes of taking your prescribed dose. Anxiety is a complicated condition caused by complex bodily functions; to get to the bottom of it takes time - even for effective medications like buspirone.

Most patients begin to feel better within 3 to 4 weeks of starting buspirone. Buspirone must be taken on a daily basis as prescribed - it will not work if you are not consistent.

What is the typical starting dose of buspirone?

There are no clinical trials determining the optimal dose for buspirone. Your doctor will determine the optimal dose that’s right for you. Many doctors start their patients with 15 mg a day of buspirone, taken in two doses.

Can I get buspirone over-the-counter?

Buspirone is currently only available via prescription. This means the use of this drug must be authorized by a licensed health care provider.
