Serious Side Effects

  • Higher blood pressure
      Higher risk if:
    • Taking Buspar (buspirone) with MAOIs
    • Taking Buspar (buspirone) within 14 days after stopping a MAOIs

    In some cases, people taking both Buspar (buspirone) and a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) have had higher blood pressure. Don't start Buspar (buspirone) for at least 14 days after stopping a MAOI, and don't take Buspar (buspirone) and MAOIs together. Talk to your doctor right away if you feel dizzy, faint, or have a very bad headache.

  • Serotonin syndrome
      Higher risk if:
    • Taking other medicines that affect serotonin levels

    Serotonin is one of the chemicals in your brain responsbile for your mood, and serotonin syndrome is a rare, but potentially life-threatening condition where there's too much serotonin active in the brain. Symptoms include fast heart rate, sweating, muscle stiffness or spasms, fever, and confusion. Your risk goes up if you use Buspar (buspirone) with other medications that affect serotonin (other antidepressants, lithium, triptans, St. John's wort). Get medical attention right away if you have any of these symptoms.

  • Withdrawal symptoms from other anti-anxiety medicines
      Higher risk if:
    • Stopping benzodiazepines suddenly

    Buspar (buspirone) doesn't work the same way that other anti-anxiety medicines do, therefore it won't block withdrawal symptoms you get from stopping other anti-anxiety medicines, like benzodiazepines. Work with your doctor to gradually lower the dose of your other anti-anxiety medicine(s) when switching to Buspar (buspirone).
