Buspar belongs to the class of anti-anxiety medications. This drug affects the balance of those chemicals in the human brain that, if working incorrectly, cause anxiety and similar states. Buspars is commonly prescribed in cases of anxiety disorder for regular therapy, as well as for short-term relief of symptoms such as fear, tension, irritability, dizzines, occasional anxiety spells and the like. Note that this medication is very seldom used for longer than 4 weeks in a row. Unless your doctor specifically tells you to continue with the course, drop the medication as soon as this time passes and do not begin taking it again without your healthcare provider’s advice.
Buspar must not be used in patients allergic to buspirone, Buspar’s active ingredient. It is very badly compatible with MAO inhibitors (Azilect, Eldepryl, Emsam, Marplan, Nardil, Parnate and others), so if you have taken any such medication within the past 2 weeks, warn your doctor about it. Using Buspars when there is still a trace of the MAO inhibitor left in your body systems can lead to incredibly serious, potentially fatal side effects. Certain natural chemicals that can be found in grapefruit and grapefruit juice also interact with BUSPIRONE 10 mg Tablet to a certain degree. Discuss the use of such products in your diet with your healthcare guidance before you go on a Buspars treatment regimen in earnest.
