is it safe to take expired buspirone?

I have some buspirone that expired in 2008 is it ok to take having some anxiety? ## Hello, Calvin! How are you? This medication is not listed by the FDA as becoming dangerous, once expired, but it does start to lose effectiveness, so it would actually be best to dispose of it and see your doctor for a new prescription. Additionally, this isn't a medication that you can just take as needed, when you have anxiety. In order for it to be effective, it must be taken regularly for several weeks. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank-you so much for responding and I will take that advice and talk with my doctor for a new prescription. ## Hello have a question my buspirone expired on 06/01/15...

Other side effects may be similar and include nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, and drowsiness. Are there any markings on the tablets in question? What shape are they?

white oval ## what will a watson 658 do to you ## How does this pill suppose too make u feel... ## Watson lists this tablet as containing 10mgs of Buspirone, which is used to treat anxiety. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, sedation, and dizziness. It is not a medication that is habit forming, or something that is normally abused, so the side effects really describe how it might make you feel, though they tend to wear off in about 4 to 6 weeks. Are there any other questions?

Buspirone and heart palpitations

If you have heart palpitations and your doctor give you Buspirone to help with your panic attacks, will it help with your heart palpitations? Or will it cause more heart palpitations? ## According to FDA reports, it has actually been known to cause palpitations as a side effect. Thus, in your case, I think it really depends on what's causing your palpitations, if you experience them due to panic attacks, the medication might help, if it works for you to get them under control. But there is also a chance that it may not stop them from occurring. However, most side effects are transient and tend to go away, once your body gets used to a medication, which could take 4 to 6 weeks. Are you on any other medications? Is there some other reason for your palpitations, or just the panic attac...

Buspirone dosage

My prescription of Buspirone HCL 15 mg tablets, says to take 1 tablet 3 times a day. Does that mean take 45 mg (the whole bar) a day or 5 mg (15 mg a day)? ## Hi Chase, From my own interpretation of your prescription, I'm led to assume that it means you would be taking three 15mg tablets a day (totaling 45mg after your last dose). That translates to dosing every 8 hours within a 24hr period. If the instructions still don't make sense, I'd encourage you to contact your prescribing doctor and/or the local pharmacy who dispensed this medication just to be on the safe side. I hope this helps!

how long does buspirone show up in your urine

I have a urine test in about 2-3 weeks. I've only taken 1 30 mg busiprone 5 days ago.

I'm being drug tested for a job tomorrow and I took one 10mg tablet of buspirone this morning and about a week ago I took like two 1 mg tablets of lorazepam and like 3 buspirone and I was just wondering if it would show up tomorrow in my urine test? ## Buspirone is not a controlled substance, so it is not usually tested for on standard employment drug tests, according to FDA reports.

does buspirone feel the same as xanax

I wanna know if I took these buspirone 15mg if it would feel the same as xanax? I have really bad anxiety and came across these? ## Hello, Nick! How are you?

buspirone mg changes

Was taking buspirone 5mg for anxiety and it helped but once Ihad my prescription refilled to buspirone 15mg (rectangle split in 5s) it has had a bad effect and isnt helping at all but making me worse. I take the same amount of five at a time but its somehow effecting me different. Is it possible to have adifferent reaction to the same medication just because of the change in mg? ## Hi sam, From my own experience as well as the feedback of numerous other patients, I do believe that changing tablets, manufacturers, etc, can bring about a different reaction - even if you're taking the same medication and dosage. My stance on the matter is based on the seemingly ever-changing list of inactive ingredients (also referred to as binders/fillers) that each pill is composed of. What I've ...

a little white oblong pill with imprint ze36

It was given to my dog by a vet. ZE36 is the imprint on this little white oblong pill. Can't remember what it is or why it was given to my dog. ## Called the Vet,and it was prescribed for Allergies ## Hi Sheila, Thanks for the update. I'm not sure if the Vet gave you a specific answer as to what it might be called, but I did some research and found a white oblong pill with ZE 36 to be identified as Buspirone hydrochloride (5mg). This medication is marketed for use in treating anxiety disorders - So it's unclear to me how it would be beneficial for allergies, but my guess is that animals respond differently to it than humans? Nevertheless, for your own verification, the pill itself is manufactured by Zydus Pharmaceuticals and carries a National Drug Code of 68382-0180. A smal...
