I have been taking 20mg of Prozac for the last four years with good results except I have a constant tightness in my stomach. I have been taking 15mg of Buspirone for the last two weeks. The tightness is worse and I'm awake from 3am every night. I will keep taking it until my next appointment in a month and a half time as I'm hoping these symptoms are side effects and will fade in time. Has anybody had the same experience?
