In reply to buspar side effects, posted by Jeff on April 21, 1999, at 19:21:01

> Is anyone out there experiencing agitation or nervousness from Buspar.
> I've been taking it for three weeks, moving up from 7.5mg (half pill) twice a day to 12.5mg am and 7.5 pm.
> I still have quite a bit of anxiety and about an hour after a dose a start to feel a kind of rush or nervousness. I can't tell if this is just agitation as a side-effect of the drug, or if the drug is actually causing more anxiety.
> I don't understand how something supposedly used to reduce anxiety can potentially cause nervousness or agitation as is mentioned in the FAQ sheet. Has anyone had this problem? If so did you have to stop taking the drug because of it?
> I'm taking it because I have depression with a large component of anxiety and the four antidepressants I've tried, Paxil,Prozac, Zoloft, and Effexor all caused enough agitation for me to quit. My doctor decided it might be best to just go with the anti-anxiety drug,Buspar and try to calm things down. At this point everything I take seems to cause more nervousness.
> What kind of side-effects have you had from this drug. I'd really appreciate any advice or experiences you may have had. Thanks for your help. Jeff

Just an addition to my previous question. If you've used Buspar, how long did it take to work and what dosage did you have to get up to before feeling positive effects. I'm up to 20mg/day so far, and feeling both tired and agitated.
