I have been taking Buspar (5 mg. when I get up, 5 mg. at 2:30 p.m.) for six weeks now, and in the last week I have had several instances of what is, for me, abnormal anger. This is a new symptom, and disturbing, because Buspar does seem to help anxiety for me; I even felt it was going to be a miracle drug. But I can't have anger coming out of the blue. Has anyone else had a similar experience?
Seems like the anger would have manifested before now if it was the buspar. Any drug can cause unwanted side-effects. Best to talk with your doctor and decide if it's the Buspar or another symptom of anxiety or something else. I don't think you should do this alone. You need your docs input.
Very quickly after posting this question, I reduced caffeine, and that turned the tide. I have determined that it is better not to take Buspar and caffeine at the same time. I have had no further anger of any sort in the past week. I have been on Buspar for seven weeks now.
