Buspirone is a prescription medication used to treat the symptoms of anxiety. It is believed that buspirone works differently than other medications in its class, but researchers do not know how it works exactly. Researchers believe if affects serotonin and dopamine, which are chemical messengers in the brain that cause anxiety symptoms.

Buspirone claims to help patients feel less jittery and irritable. It may help with other symptoms such as sleep trouble and sweating associated with anxiety.

Ingredients

The main ingredient is buspirone hydrochloride. It is a white crystalline water soluble powder.  The tablets also contain inactive ingredients: colloidal silicon dioxide, lactose, magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, and sodium starch glycolate. The 30 mg tablet also contains iron oxide.  Patients who have lactose intolerance may be advised by their medical professional to avoid this medication.

Dosage

Buspirone is available in tablets of 5 mg, 10 mg, 15 mg, or 30 mg. Patients typically start the medication by taking 7.5 mg every 12 hours. Doctors may increase the medication by 5 mg every few days and do not recommend taking more than 60 mg in a 24 hour period. It is suggested that the full daily dose be split and taken at regular intervals throughout the day so that the medication is maintained in the body.
