Buspinol review

Buspinol, an effective medication for moderate mood condition, is different from traditional benzodiazepines and has the advantage of having no sedating effects. Patients may start relying on the medication for treatment of mild symptoms after realizing the other possible effects and interactions.

Buspinol is an antimood condition medication that targets serotonin type 1A receptors. 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, mood condition can be alleviated. Buspinol is available by other brand names such as Narol, Sorbon, Buspar or Buspar Dividose and is available in tablet form. Buspinol does not cause the patient to feel sedated, unlike other antimood condition medicaments belonging to the benzopiazepine class.

Buspinol is given to patients who have mood condition disorders and provides short-term relief of mood condition symptoms. It is effective for individuals with generalized mood condition in moderate cases. Severe mood condition, panic disorders and obsessive-compulsive disorders may be treated with this medication, but not as well as with other antipsychotic medicaments.

Buspinol has some side effects with varying intensities which include drowsiness, upset stomach, stomach pain, diarrhea, costiveness, cephalalgia, unipolar disorder, excitement, insomnia, lightheadedness, weakness or numbness, chest pain, confusion, soar throat, ringing in the ears, nervousness and lassitude. Seek immediate medical attention if you experience symptoms such as skin rash, vomiting, itching, arrhythmia, unusual head or neck muscle movement and blurred vision.

Special precautions should be taken for patients with a history of kidney or liver disease. Buspinol is contraindicated for people with known hypersensitivity reactions to this or other medicaments or food.

Women who are pregnant, plan to become pregnant and breastfeeding mothers should consult their doctor before taking this medication. Children should be monitored closely to ensure proper treatment.

Talk with your doctor about potential interactions if you intend to consume alcohol or caffeinated beverages while taking this medication. It is possible that these beverages will affect the medication's efficiency.

Buspinol is believed to interfere with serotonin function in the brain through its partial agonistic action on the 5-HT1A receptor and has agonist and antagonistic actions on dopamine receptors as well as some indirect actions on other chemicals in the brain. Once serotonin and dopamine levels are improved, people suffering from mood condition will experience relief and relaxation.

In a study of 30 patients with moderate mood condition, all patients were given 10 mg of Buspinol twice a day for 2 weeks. These patients were not given any antipsychotic medicaments prior to treatment. At the end of the first week, 24 patients showed signs of improved mood and relief. By the end of the second week, 28 out of 30 patients were considered emotionally stable while the other two improved from moderate to mild mood condition.

Buspinol is available in pharmacies and doctor's offices. Be certain to check the expiration date, manufacturer and location of manufacturer. When buying online, verify the source to be confident of the quality and freshness of the medication you are buying.

The recommended dosage for Buspinol is 10 mg to 15 mg two to three times daily. Since this medication is less potent than benzodiazepines, benzodiazepines are usually given first. Buspinol works well when co-prescribed with benzodiazepines for patients with social phobias and panic attacks.
