I accidentally took a double dose of my buspar (buspirone). Normal is 15mg x 3 and i took 30 at once. Is this safe?

2 doctors agree

In brief: Yes

You should be fine.
Drink lots of water just watch for drowsiness/ lightheartedness. Take buspar(buspirone) with or without food. If this was the 2nd dose of the day then take the next dose the next day. For Buspar to work properly it should be taken at regular intervals (2 -3 divided doses/day) .Choose the times that are best for you; this way you can take your medication at same time each day.
