Buspirone vs Xanax

Do the pills have the same purpose or side effects? Do they look alike? They're both white & break into parts. ## They can both be used to treat anxiety, but they are not in the same class of medications. Buspirone is classified by the FDA as an anxiolytic, but Xanax is a Benzodiazepine that is used to treat panic disorders, anxiety, and some forms of insomnia, it also carries the risk of being habit forming, though Buspirone does not. 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?

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...
