Xanax vs. Buspar
229 Replies RSS
Yes-what is the major difference between these 2 meds? I have taken xanax for several years. I'm thinking abt. changing to Buspar. Can you switch meds like these without tapering off the xanax. Does Buspar help w/ Panic attacks? ## buspar is for depression and xanax is for anxiety. ## buspar is for depression and xanax is for anxiety. I was wrong buspar is also used for anxiety but it not a Federal drug and it does have addition potutial like xanax ## Hi, I wanted to address the panic attacks you are experiencing. Often panic attacks and anxiety are the body's natural reaction to telling us something has gone wrong that needs to be addressed. It is usually some form of trauma that has happened in our life that creates the panic attacks and anxiety. Medication numbs the symptoms ...

DOES BUSPAR SHOW UP AS A OPIODS IN DRUG TEST ## No, it is not an opiate, nor related to them. ## I really hate when people post stuff when they obvious don't know what they are talking about. Benzodiazepines and opiates are 2 totally different classes of drugs. If you don't know what your talking about quit posting stupid information! !! ## I really hate ignorant people like you, the guy was asking a question because he didn't know. What's the point in a website to ask questions if your going to be an a**hole because someone doesn't know everything. ## The guy who responded was a snarky aaa wipe. What do care if someone is asking a drug question ? We are not pharmacist

Buspar(busiprone) & false positives - YES, they can happen
59 Replies RSS
I've noticed a-lot of poeple out there are asking about buspar, & false postives.. as well as it's relation to xanax (alprazalam). Let me start off by saying that my husband is prescribed 15mg. buspar (I believe 1 3x a day) along w/some other drugs from his pyschologist such as ambien, and depacote. I can state that I took his buspar during a horrible anxiety/panic attack (also known as busiprone) and I also need to mention I go to a methadone clinic. After taking the buspar, I went to clinic to take my usual drug-screen (also let me mention I was receiving takehomes, only going once every 2 weeks as I'd never failed a drug test), thinking nothing of it as I'd read they don't show up as anything. Well, WRONG for me.. my drug test came back 100% positive for benzo...

10 mg buspar pill

Can I take mucinex pain and pressure along with 10mg buspar 3 times a day? ## Hello, Cheri! How are you? I didn't find any problems or interactions listed between these medications, but it's always best to double check to be sure. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this Mucinex as possibly including nausea, dizziness, nervousness and dry mouth. BuSpar may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness and headache. Is there anything else I can help with?

Hi, my dr prescribed this for me for anxiety. At first I was hesitant because I read about the bad side effects you can get (brain zap, uncontrollable movements, etc) but I have finally decided to try it. He said start off 5mg 2x a day. My anxiety mostly presents itself with racing heart, palpitations, tightness in chest. Does buspar help calm these things down? I am also on Xanax, which helps a great deal, but I am hoping this i can take in the day time to help ease my symptoms. I just am scared of the side effects. Any experience would help. Thanks! ## Yes, it can help with those symptoms, but the only way to see if it will work for you is by trying it. For some people, it is better than Xanax, or other benzodiazepines, because you take it all the time to help keep symptoms under cont...

Some kid a school probabaly giving it out... bet they dont know its non-narcotic. ## I found an oval shape pill in the house that says FF in upper case on one side. The other side does not say any. The size is about Kirkland 600 mg calcium pill size but more oval and thinner. The surface color is faded but has brownish surface after the coating is peeled off. I would be grateful if anyone let me know what it is. ## it is probably a Fishermans Friend pill ## Yesterday I found the same oval pill on my son's bedroom. No, Its not a Fisherman Friend. Its a white with small yellow spots, has a salty taste. I don't know what it is.

Safe Dosages of Buspar

Hi out there! I suffer from a panic disorder and am prescribed Zoloft and Buspar. I recently lost my insurance and have not been able to afford my Zoloft, so needless to say, that I have been going through a type of withdrawal. Which, in turn, brings on wild panic attacks. I've my Buspar becasue it's cheaper. My question is, has anyone ever taken the maximum dosage (60 mg) at once to help with the panic attack. I have to take 20mg three times a day. But, I am really struggling and I wonder if taking 40 or 60 mg at once will calm me down. Thanks for the input and the support ## Hello, Mase! How are you? No, taking that much at once is generally not recommended. Are you getting the generic Zoloft? If so, then it really shouldn't be that expensive. However, if it, then you may ...

Buspar helps greatly to prevent panic attacks
2 Replies RSS
I started taking Buspar 3 years ago for panic attacks. For me it works to prevent the panic attacks in the first place mostly. Great for me. I was getting pretty bad ones 3 to 5 times a week and it went down to about 1 every month or so. With xanax it helps to slow down the panic attacks but once it has started it is kind of too late. I now take latuda for bipolar sever depression and schizophrenia and after 3 months i rarely think about suicide any more and am awake and active much more. Also i have not had a panic attack since starting the Latuda. ## Awesome, Nickoly! I am so happy that you've found medications that work so well for you. Have you experienced any of the typical Latuda side effects that the FDA lists, such as drowsiness, dizziness, nausea, stomach pain or diarrhea? ...

How can I switch from buspar to xanax
1 Reply RSS
I was taking xanax for my anxiety disorder. My doc switched me to buspar. I don't like it and I do not ! It is helping. I know xanax works for me and I did take it responsibly. My doc doesn't like to prescribe benzos to anyone. How can I convince him that I'm more comfortable with the xanax? I'm afraid to ask for the xanax specifically because I don't want to be treated or accused of abusing them. ## Hello, Jme! How are you? How long have you been taking the Buspar? It doesn't work like Xanax, which you can take as needed, you'll need to take the Buspar for about 4 to 5 weeks, before it'll reach its full level of efficacy in your body, in order to see if it will help you, or not. What effects don't you like about it? Many doctors prefer it to benzodia...

I am already taking 10 mg buspirone 2 times per day and my doc has suggested adding 0.25 mg paxil, to further help with anxiety. Is this safe? Also, please tell me the credentials of the person responding. thanks very much. ## They both can increase your serotonin levels, which can be risky, but they can be taken together, with physician approval and regular monitoring. It's also more prone to occurring with high dosages, these are both very low. BuSpar is classified by the FDA as an anxiolytic. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Paxil is classified as an SSRI antidepressant. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood swings and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with?

is buspar like norotin
1 Reply RSS
Is buspar like norotin? Someone told me it is the same. ## Hello, Victoria! How are you? No, they are not the same, they aren't even related medications. BuSpar contains the active ingredient Buspirone, which is classified by the FDA as an anxiolytic. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, nervousness and insomnia. However, Neurontin is classified as an anticonvulsant that can help with some types of nerve pain and some mood disorders. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight gain. Is there anything else I can help with?

buspar n anger
1 Reply RSS
Does buspars make anyone else angry? ## Hello, Billy! How are you? How long have you been taking it? Sometimes, these anxiolytics can cause symptoms like that for the first few weeks that you are taking them, while your body is adjusting. After 3 to 4 weeks, your body usually adjusts and it starts having its intended effect. Other side effects, as listed by the FDA, may include nausea, dizziness, headache and feeling nervous/excited. However, if you've been taking it for over a month and are still experiencing this, then it may not be the right medication for you and you should speak to your doctor about trying something else.

hi a few weeks ago I skipped 4 doses of buspar which I thought was interfering with another med but it wasn't I had a melt down so I am back one them what I'd like to know if these thoughts will subside? thank you for your help ## Hello, Fool! How are you? According to the information provided by the NIH, you likely experienced both withdrawal and rebound effects from stopping it abruptly, which could explain why they have been so severe. In theory, they should subside, but it could take a few weeks for things to balance back out. However, don't be afraid to talk to your doctor about it, you may need something else to help, in the meantime, or you might require a dosage adjustment. Have things improved, at all?
