View Full Version : Buspar dry mouth? and does it work?

I think I might want to try something for anxiety/ stress. I was thinking buspar...but does it cause dry mouth really? And does it work? I saw dry mouth listed as a side efect, but anxiety can cause dry mouth too. I tried to research on this site, but this drug doesnt seem very popular...can anyone share their experience? My anxiety is not severe but has been persistent, and I am stressed out so thats not helping. I know ssris work but it seems those all cause dry mouth too...and klonopin is maybe too strong.

Thanks in advance!

Pardon me for the potential thread derailment, but don't people ask doctors about this sort of thing instead of going medication shopping?

Buspar made me extremely tired.... dry mouth? no.

Buspar made me dizzy at times. I was on it for about 9 months, and it helped my anxiety but not enough. I do not believe it caused dry mouth from what I remember.
Now, I'm on Lexapro (10mg) and Clonazepam(Klonopin) 0.5mg up to two times daily..
I highly suggest the Lexapro, it has worked very well to knock out most of my anxiety and I do not feel I need a higher dose so that's always nice.
