Buspirone is an anti-anxiety medicine that affects chemicals in the brain that may be unbalanced in people with anxiety. Buspirone is used to treat symptoms of anxiety, such as fear, tension, irritability, dizziness, pounding heartbeat, and other physical symptoms.
I started on 5mg daily, then went up to 10mg. There may have been a slight improvement in my anxious feelings at first, but this was not nearly as effective as I needed to treat my PTSD. Main side effects for me were coming out in a rash and sweating like Gary Glitter waiting to collect his laptop at PC world!
No real issues coming off this med – they were having no beneficial effect on me, just side effects, so was delighted to stop taking them.
