I was on it for a while back in 2002. I forget what anxiety benefits it gave me but I remember that it caused me to gain weight. About a pound a week even though I was only on 10mg a day taken as 5mg 2x a day. If I took more than 5mg at a time I would get dizzy when I moved my head too fast.
Has anyone else noticed these side effects? At the time I was sleeping from about 10am-5pm due to a work schedule and insomnia but when I went off and went back on around 2003 I noticed it gave me insomnia. Since 2003 I’ve been falling asleep around 11-2am and on Buspar I couldn’t sleep until 5 or 6am. Did anyone else get side effects like that? Did you think it worked on your anxiety?
I don’t know if I want to refill my prescription and try Buspar again due to the insomnia and weight gain. Did anyone find out what you can do to help with these side effects?
