Expired Buspar

So i’m just wondering if i’m able to take 3 month expired buspar? I haven’t been sleeping again due to my anxiety spiking up super bad at night causing me to have panic attacks in my sleep.. i haven’t been able to go to the doctor and they can’t fit me in until next month but I found my old Prescription that has the date to discard as 2/4/22. Will they still help me sleep?? ## Most medications that have been expired for a short time are still ok to take. Few, if any develop any kind of dangerous issue. Typically, the med begins to lose efficacy. I’m not a doc, or a pharmacist, and I would suggest you call a pharmacist and run this situation by them.

Is it ok to take BuSpar and Xanax?

My dr has me on 1mg of xanax and I am still having anxiety, so he put me on buspar as well. Is it safe and will it work? ## Hi Mary, If your doctor prescribed both medications then I believe it is his or her professional opinion (after an in person evaluation & reviewing your medical records) that you can safely take them together in the doses that you were put on. My understanding is that your prescribing doctor also believes they will work well together... So I think if you're going to question their "expertise", perhaps it would be best to seek the opinion of another medical doctor (or pharmacist) outside of your network. I'd also encourage you to check out the University of Maryland Medical Center (umm.edu / drug interaction tool) for good measure, where you can ...

Xanax vs. Buspar

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? ## 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 but do not address the root of the problem. Have you considered going into therapy to see what is causing the panic attacks and anxiety? ## buspar is suppose to be taken everyday its taken to level u out....zanax are suppose...

does buspar cause leg pain

I’ve been taking Buspar about two years. I ran out while my doctor was on vacation and I noticed my legs were hurting and very weak. I was in the hospital about two weeks ago and I ran out again and was trying not to take buspar at all. I can barely walk!! My doctor gave me Requip. It knocks me out and does not seem to help. I guess I will start back on buspar. I don’t know what to do. ## It is possible that you are experiencing some withdrawal symptoms from stopping it abruptly. Buspar withdrawal symptoms could also include nausea, weight changes, mood changes, and rebound anxiety. Are you on any other medications? Have you consulted your doctor about possibly tapering off of it slowly?

can i take buspar with chantix?

i am taking buspar for anxiety and chantix to quit smoking. ## According to both my physician, psychiatrist, AND pharmacist, yes. I'm currently taking Chantix (Champix here in Canada) with 15mg of buspar 3x daily. However, fair warning. You may find yourself getting brain zaps (Google if you don't know what those are) around the time you take your buspar. It's annoying, but it goes away. However this can be dangerous if you have to drive around the same time, so try and work it so you don't have to. Source: Personal experience ## I haven't been able to find any problems or interactions listed, either, but they should not be taken without a physician's approval and monitoring. As Shane has mentioned, you also have to be careful about worsening of some of the side ...

Take One Pill 3 Times A Day

How long is the interval for 3 x a day be? ## Hi Maureen, If you're to take one pill 3 times a day, the best advice I can offer is that you divide 24 (hours in day) by 3. This would equate to taking one pill every 8 hours. I hope this makes sense! Please post back if you have any other questions or comments regarding this. ## 3 TAB A DAY, OF LEVETIRACETA 1000MG. HE WOULD LIKE TO SPREAD THEM OUT. ## Not true. That's every 8 hours. When it's 3 times a day you take 3 times during the day. You don't have to wake up or take it around the clock.only if it says every 8 hours. So what times are best for you. I take mine morning, lunch, and dinner. ## This is the most intelligent, well-explained answer to this question that I've ever come across. My Dr was not able to tell me...

Non-benzodiazepene anxiety treatments

Looking for ideas of alternative anxiety treatments other than benzodiazepenes. I do not know if I can be prescribed benzos due to my medical history. I was wondering if anybody had any ideas or other alternatives that I may ask my doctor about? ## BuSpar is an option, the FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and weight loss. It is not considered addictive. Many SSRI and SSNRI antidepressants can also treat anxiety. It really depends on which one works best for you. Are you on any other medications?
