I had extreme nausea on a very low dose of Abilify (aripiprazole) & had to discontinue use? Would Buspar have a similar side effect? Also does it cause weight gain
Per my doc, stopped pristiq (desvenlafaxine) cold turkey and started 5mg of buspar, 2x per day to help with chronic nausea. Now dizzy to the point of extreme nausea. Is it the pristiq (desvenlafaxine) or Buspar causing this? Help!

My doctor just switched me from buspar to 2mg of abilify, and the nausea I've gotten is ridiculous. Even after taking it at night, I'm still nauseous and dizzy. Is it safe to take zofran 8mg for this nausea, even though I'm taking Zoloft 100mg?
Would an allergic reaction to Buspar (buspirone) include headache, sore throat, nausea, fatigue, tenderness of skin, and itchy hives?
Not all are allergic: If you developed hives, itching, and sensitive skin following ingestion of Buspar (buspirone) then, that is certainly consistent with what one would expect from an allergic reaction to a medication. However, sore throat, nausea, fatigue, and headache would either be SIDE EFFECTS or unrelated. Consider a medical checkup for those symptoms. More information- www. Healthtap.

But would prefer the "tried and true" bunch above. ...Read more
