    jeff on Feb, 27, 2013:

    I am a 47 yo male who was giving buspirone instead of ativan/lorazepam that I was on. Since starting the buspirone i have had shortness of breathe and horrific coughing which led to a panic attack while driving. Luckily I had the lorazepam on me. I called my dr. and they said if I have more coughing issues to call them back. I took my third 7.5mg dose and I have literally coughed myself silly all night. Guess I'm switching to a different medication. This is crazy.

  • From this study (4 years ago):

  • My doctor added Ritalin to my Buspar as well as other meds I take. I experience fatigue that sometimes is quite bad. I also suffer some depression and again, it sometimes flares up more than usual. Should I have seen results from the Ritalin quite soon as I understood I would. Also, I wonder about the interaction of all these drugs I'm on. I do trust my doctor but have been reading so much on drugs that don't work well together and can cause trouble in the long run.
    Thank you.
