Buspirone is an FDA-approved anxiolytic medication, prescribed to treat anxiety disorders
Buspirone is a nonbenzodiazepine anxiolytic medication. It’s unique in that it’s not chemically or pharmacologically related to any existing psychotropic agents—more commonly known as antidepressants, benzodiazepines, stimulants, antipsychotics, and mood stabilizers. While the exact way buspirone works to treat anxiety is not known, it does have measurable impacts on anxiety.

While buspirone is trusted by medical providers, it can come with some side effects.
The most common side effects when taking buspirone are lightheadedness, dizziness, drowsiness, diarrhea, nausea, headache, insomnia, and nervousness.
A very rare but serious side effect that may occur with buspirone therapy is serotonin syndrome. The symptoms of serotonin syndrome include, but are not limited to: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fever, increased heart rate, changes in blood pressure, overactive reflexes, tremor, extreme agitation or restlessness, hallucinations, loss of coordination, skin flushing, shivering, confusion, seizures, and coma. Seek emergent medical care if you are experiencing any of these symptoms as they could be a sign of a life-threatening condition.
