    I was on this medication for anxiety for a year and it helped so much that I was able to actually go off of it. It gave me the ability to "get a grip" and be able to concentrate and absorb what I needed to learn in therapy. It broke the cycle of anxiety. There were side effects like lightheadedness that did go away after I was on it for awhile. This was alot less bothersome than the anxi ... Show Full Comment

    I experienced dizziness, tightening of the eyes, light headed, nausea. I did not like the way this made me feel at all. Each time I took it, it made me feel awful. Would not recommend

    Nausea is common with BuSpar, and I understood that when I started taking it. I had no idea how bad it would get. It got so bad that I couldn't keep anything down-- I hadn't eaten anything!-- and I threw up multiple times. I'm afraid to take it now. Not only that, it's ineffective.

    I hate this Medication! It makes me feel more anxious then I ever was and I am very moody/emotional. It makes me dizzy and light headed. I have been on this for 4 weeks now and at first my dr said the side effects where normal and would go away. 4 weeks later they are still awful. I also have started having cluster headaches which have not been determind if related, but I do not think this is a go ... Show Full Comment
