Cold turkey??: You haven't listed all your medications, but suddenly stopping the xanax (alprazolam) could risk seizures for sure. You sound like you may be in withdrawal, and i suggest a taper rather than "cold turkey." Norco can cause a withdrawal syndrome also. For your own health, please work with your doctor on this rather than doing what you're doing. ...Read more

Aftr 2 wks of stopping lexapro 10 cld trky n upping buspar (buspirone) frm 30 to 60 w no s.e or withdrawals now my anxiety n depression is worse. Will it get btr?

Hard to know: If you were being treated for anxiety and depression with Lexapro, (escitalopram) and then stopped it, there is an excellent chance the illnesses will relapse and you will experience the symptoms of that. It's just like treating high blood pressure or arthritis or diabetes--if you stop the treatment, symptoms return. Please call you treating physician and discuss this in detail. ...Read more

Can you stop Buspar (buspirone) anytime?

It was prescribed: By a doctor so it should be discontinued a per your doctors directions. I will say that I have never encountered withdrawal from Buspar (buspirone) and I have been prescribing it frequently since the medication came out. It is my go to medication for generalized anxiety. Your biggest risk of stopping suddenly would be stressing the nerve transmitters associated with it, perhaps making the risk of relapse more likely, but I am not aware of any study that has addressed that issue. Discuss it first with your physician and best of luck to you. ...Read more

Dr just gave me viladozone and told me to stop 20 mg daily buspar (buspirone). do I need to wait for buspar (buspirone) to clear from my system first? if so how long?

Dr just gave me viladozone and told me to stop 20 mg daily buspar (buspirone). do I need to wait for buspar (buspirone) to clear from my system first? if so how long?

At least 24 hours: The half life of Buspar (buspirone) and it's active metabolite is 3 and 6 hours respectively. This means that very little will be present 24 hours after stopping it. There is a possible interaction between Buspar (buspirone) and viladozone so it's wise to wait at least 24 hours after stopping Buspar (buspirone) before starting Viladozone. ...Read more

How long does Buspar (buspirone) 5 mg 3xs day stay in your system. my last does was last night i only took for 6 days. my dr said to stop. when can i take zofran

Buspar/clearance: Under ordinary circumstances, the Buspirone should clear in 12-24 hrs, although traces could be detected in urine (if we could test). I don't believe there would be any interference if you are or not on Zofran (ondansetron). ...Read more

I got perceive buspar (buspirone) 15 for anxiety  twice a day I get lightheadedness, headaches and a little anxiety.should I stop taking it?

Unclear: Buspirone typically helps with anxiety. 15 mg is not a high dose. But it is possible to get the side effects taht you mention. I think that you and your doctor should try to sort out whether the symptoms are a part of the anxiety, for which you are taking the buspirone; or, whether the symptoms are a side effect. ...Read more

Can busparoine cause arrythmias? I'm on propanolol too. Took my first Buspar (buspirone) today and felt weak, body and head zapping. Very odd. Should I stop?

Generally no: Busparone doesn't usually cause arrhythmias but if you don't feel well, you shouldn't take it. We're all different and our response to medicine can be unique. That said, if you've only taken 1, you might want to give it a little more of a chance before you make up your mind and dismiss it for good. ...Read more
