Anxiron is an effective medicament for moderate anxiety. It is different from traditional benzodiazepines and has the advantage of having no sedating effects. People may start relying on the medicament for treatment of mild symptoms after realizing the other possible effects and interactions.
Anxiron is an antianxiety medicament that targets serotonin type 1A receptors. Serotonin is a chemical in the brain that is responsible for the patient's mood so as the medicament alters the messages passed on by the neurotransmitter, anxiety can be alleviated. Anxiron is also available by the brand names Buspimen, Narol, Sorbon, Buspar or Buspar Dividose and is available in tablet form. Unlike other antianxiety medicaments belonging to the benzopiazepine class, Anxiron does not cause the patient to feel sedated.
Anxiron is prescribed to patients who have anxiety disorders. It provides short-term relief of anxiety symptoms and is effective for individuals with generalized anxiety in moderate cases. Severe anxiety, panic disorders and obsessive-compulsive disorders may be treated with this medicament to an extent, but not as well as compared to other antipsychotic medicaments.
Anxiron can cause a series of side effects with varying intensities. Included in these side effects are somnolence, upset stomach, stomach pain, diarrhea, constipation, cephalalgia, depression, excitement, insomnia, lightheadedness, weakness or numbness, chest pain, confusion, soar throat, ringing in the ears, nervousness and fatigue. Immediate attention should be given to symptoms such as skin rash, vomiting, itching, arrhythmia, unusual head or neck muscle movement and blurred vision.
Special precautions should be given to patients suffering from or with a history of kidney or liver disease. Anxiron is contraindicated for people who have known hypersensitivity reactions to this or other medicaments or food.
Women who are pregnant, plan to become pregnant and breastfeeding mothers should first consult their doctor before taking this medicament. Children should be monitored carefully to ensure proper treatment.
Talk with your doctor about possible interactions if you intend to consume alcohol or caffeinated beverages while taking this medicament. It is possible that these will affect the medicament's efficiency.
Anxiron is believed to interfere with serotonin function in the brain through its partial agonistic action on the 5-HT1A receptor. It also has agonist and antagonistic actions on dopamine receptors and some indirect actions on other chemicals in the brain. As serotonin and dopamine levels are improved, people suffering from anxiety will experience relief and relaxation.
In a study, 30 patients suffering from moderate anxiety were given 10 mg of Anxiron twice a day for 2 weeks. These patients were not given any antipsychotic medicaments including benzodiazepines prior to treatment. After the first week, 24 patients showed improved mood and relief. Within the second week, 28 out of 30 were considered emotionally stable while the other two improved from moderate to mild anxiety.
Anxiron is available in pharmacies and doctor's clinics. Be sure to check the expiration date, manufacturer and location of manufacturer. When buying online, verify the source first to be sure about the quality and freshness of the medicament.
Recommended dosage for Anxiron is 10 mg to 15 mg two to three times daily. Since it is less potent compared to benzodiazepines, benzodiazepines are usually given first. Anxiron works well when co-prescribed with benzodiazepines in patients with social phobias and panic attacks.
