Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Azaspirones

Written by sshowalter, green crane.

Common name for Azaspirones prescribed for GAD is Buspirone (BuSpar)

Effect of Azaspirones on Generalized Anxiety Disorder

Buspirone is a relatively new anxiolytic drug that is believed to enhance the activity of serotonin, a neurotransmitter involved in regulating anxiety and mood. It takes within two weeks to take effect. For that reason, it is not useful for treating acute anxiety and insomnia. The primary advantages of buspirone are that it is not sedating and it does not result in physical dependence or tolerance as compared with benzodiazepines.

Do not take buspirone with mono-amine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors. Do not take with alcohol or other sedating drugs. Use with caution if you have liver or kidney disease.

Possible side effects include:

  • Excitability, nervousness
