Buspar... problems HELP!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by schleprock on March 8, 2013, at 13:39:02

Continuing my buspirone taper and things aren't getting any better. Down to 2.5mg late afternoon and 2.5mg at bedtime. Extreme daytime drowsiness yesterday, then some sort of extreme agitation/borderline anxiety for a few hours after taking my first dosage - the worst I've felt in a while. Took a long time to fall asleep after second dosage. Feel like crap today with absolutely little motivation for anything. Assuming I don't just raise the dosage back up, should I continue with the divided dose of 2.5mg twice a day, or would I be better off on 5mg at bedtime (my tapering pattern was halving first dose, then second dose from initial 5mg twice a day.) Should I have tapered differently?

Seriously, I didn't expect this much from a medication that did nothing but make me feel like a wreck after taking it.

P.S. are there any inferences I can make from my experience with buspirone- things like these adverse effects indicating that I already had an adequate supply of serotonin before taking it, and suffer primarily from an imbalance of another NT?
