Is Buspar (buspirone) safe for patients with arrhythmia? (wpw) i'm on lopressor, synthroid, and multiple vitamin daily. Any risks?

Is Buspar (buspirone) safe for patients with arrhythmia? (wpw) i'm on lopressor, synthroid, and multiple vitamin daily. Any risks?

Usually, safe.: Although theoretically, there could be blood pressure or heart rate effects of Buspar (buspirone) due to its effects upon serotonin and dopamine, there are no reports of buspar-induced wpw-associated arrhythmias. Interestingly, although IV beta-blocker might not halt a wpw-related arrhythmia, oral beta blockers seem to decrease stress-related recurrences of tachycardia in WPW patients. ...Read more

Interaction Risk Etc: Multiple interactions possible and though the side effects are usually mild they can become severe. Risks include Serotonin Syndrome (see Wikipedia), fluid accumulation, and even seizures. Your combination of activating, antidepressant, and sedating/tranquilizing meds is worth a close review. For e.g. clonazepam 3 mg daily is quite high in combo with the others. In psychotherapy too hopefully? ...Read more
