Ansial review

Ansial is an effective medication for moderate anxiety. It is distinct from traditional benzodiazepines and has the advantage of having no sedating effects. People may start relying on the medication for treatment of mild symptoms after knowing other possible effects and interactions.

Ansial is an antianxiety medication that targets serotonin type 1A receptors on the nerves. Serotonin is a chemical in the brain responsible for the patient's mood so as the medication alters the messages passed on by the neurotransmitter, anxiety can be alleviated. Ansial is also available by the brand names Buspimen, Narol, Sorbon, Buspar or Buspar Dividose and comes in tablet form. Unlike other antianxiety medications belonging to the benzopiazepine class, Ansial does not cause sedation.

Ansial is prescribed to patients suffering from anxiety disorders. It provides short-term relief of anxiety symptoms and is usually effective for individuals with generalized anxiety in moderate cases. Severe anxiety, panic disorders and obsessive-compulsive disorders may be treated to an extent but not as well as compared to other antipsychotic medications.

Like any other medication, Ansial can cause a series of side effects with varying intensities. Included are drowsiness, upset stomach, stomach pain, diarrhoea, constipation, headache, 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 like skin rash, emesis, itching, irregular heartbeat, unusual head or neck muscle movement and blurred vision.

Special precautions should be given to persons suffering from or with a history of kidney or liver disease. Ansial is contraindicated for people who have known hypersensitivity reactions to the medication or other medications or food. Pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers should first consult their doctor before taking this medication. Children should be guided accordingly to ensure proper treatment. People taking medications, drinking alcohol and taking caffeine should inform their doctor to determine any interaction that might affect the medication's efficiency.

Ansial is thought 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 plus some indirect actions on other brain chemicals. As serotonin and dopamine levels are improved in the brain, people suffering from anxiety will experience relief and relaxation.

In a study, 30 patients suffering from moderate anxiety were given 10 mg of Ansial twice a day for 2 weeks. These patients were not given any antipsychotic medications 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.

Ansial 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 medication.

Recommended dosage for Ansial is 10 mg to 15 mg two to three times daily. Since it is less potent compared to benzodiazepines, benzodiazepines are usually given first. Ansial works well when co-prescribed with benzodiazepines in patients with social phobias and panic attacks.
