Is Buspar an anti anxiety med? Weight gain? Does it have to be taken every day? Or is it like valium. Thanks
Yes, maybe, yes, no: It is an anti-anxiety drug and for some it does seem to increase appetite and result in weight gain and it is to be taken regularly as directed - it is not a PRN-type (for the moment) medication.

Considering Buspar for GAD , but very very concerned about weight gain (part of reason I am anxious in the first place).is weight gain common?
Unlikely: Weight gain is listed as an uncommon (~1%) side effect of Buspar. If this has been recommended by your doctor for GAD, it's worth trying. Monitor your weight and let doc know if you're concerned and stop med if it's a problem. Bottom line: Buspar is not associated with weight gain.

Help please! what drugs are good for anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorders that won't cause weight gain?
That's a tough one.: Bezodiazepines dont cause weight gain, work well but can be addicting so use cautiously. Hydroxyzine (vistaril) and Buspirone (buspar) are minimally effective & don't cause weight gain they deal mostly with anxiety & may help OCD some. The best meds long term are serotonergic or dual acting antidepressants (serotonergic/noradrenergic) for both anxiety and OCD but most can cause some weight gain. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
