Questions about tapering when suicidal


Recommended Posts

I've been taking Buspar for about 6 weeks now and I felt the same increase in aggression that you're talking about. I would all of a sudden just get really angry over minor things. I read a bunch of forums and found that other people had the same side effect from taking buspar. About a month after I started taking it, I stopped becoming irritated so easily and my aggression level is back to normal, so to speak. I think that buspar is helping with my SA, although it is still kind of early in my treatment. My main issue with it is that I get incredibly dizzy about 20-30 minutes after taking it. The dizziness can last for at least an hour sometimes. I figured it would go away after the first couple of weeks, but it is a persistent side effect. Have you had other side effects aside from the aggression?
