Labor And Delivery
The effect of Ansial hydrochloride on labor and delivery in women is unknown. No adverse effects were noted in reproduction studies in rats.
Wellbutrin is an atypical antidepressant which has some effect on anxiety with long term use. Ansial is an anxiolytic which should help with anxiety almost immediately. They work hand in hand to help you feel better.https://www.drugs.com/wellbutrin.htmlhttps://www.drugs.com/Ansial.html

P.S. What are you doing up so early??
I suffer from Insomnia for the past 10 years.
Have a nice day.
Thank you for responding. Do you know why he would have said Wellbutrin but then gave me Ansial?
No?? Perhaps he simply forgot the Wellbutrin script or, more likely, felt it would be more expedient to treat your anxiety first?I think you should call the office just to verify. WC
Wellbutrin is used in the treatment of major depressive disorder; depression and belongs to the drug class miscellaneous antidepressants.
Ansial is used in the treatment of sexual dysfunction, ssri induced; anxiety; panic disorder; borderline personality disorder and belongs to the drug class miscellaneous anxiolytics, sedatives and hypnotics.
My doctor and pharmacist told me that Ansial is the generic for wellbutrin.
Well, they are wrong.
Agree with Masso, Bupropion and Ansial are totally different. Your doctor, pharmacist or someone is badly confused.
Further clarification is needed here. Ansial is NOT Wellbutrin. Bupropion is Wellbutrin and so is Zyban. Ansial and bupropion are NOT interchangeable.
Thank you for your much needed clarification to the member saparsells.
I am so sorry for the my confusion, thanks for clearing this up for me.
No problem. Glad it helped
Hello msmad, Wellbutrin is an antidepressant, and Ansial is an anti-anxiety medication. That is the difference between the two. Hope I helped.
Hi msmad:"Bupropion" = generic of "Wellbutrin" - an antidepressant med."Ansial" = generic of "Buspar" - an anti-anxiety med.
An overdose of Ansial may cause:
- Blurred vision
If an overdose occurs, call a poison control center at 1-800-222-1222.
If you or someone else has any severe symptoms after an overdose, call 911.
What Is Ansial (BuSpar)?
Ansial is a prescription medication used to treat anxiety.
It belongs to a group of anti-anxiety drugs called anxiolytics, but it seems to work somewhat differently than other drugs in the class.
Though researchers don't know exactly how Ansial reduces anxiety, they believe it competes with serotonin and dopamine, which are neurotransmitters (chemical brain messengers) involved with causing anxiety symptoms.
Ansial isn't for treating occasional stress associated with everyday life. Rather, doctors prescribe Ansial for anxiety disorder and short-term relief of anxiety symptoms.
You may be diagnosed with anxiety disorder if you have at least one full month of anxiety symptoms such as shakiness, tension, irritability, dizziness, worry, fear, upset stomach, and trouble sleeping.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Ansial in 1986 for the drug manufacturer Bristol-Myers Squibb, under the brand name BuSpar.
In 2001, the FDA approved a generic version of Ansial for several drug manufacturers, and Bristol-Myers Squibb discontinued the brand name BuSpar.
Recently, researchers began studying other possible uses for Ansial.
A 2013 study published in the journal International Review of Neurobiology found that Ansial may be an effective treatment for Tourette syndrome, a brain disorder that causes people to make uncontrolled and repetitive movements and sounds (tics).
An earlier study, published in 2011 in the journal Therapeutic Advances in Neurological Disorders, also found that Ansial may reduce the frequency and severity of Tourette syndrome tics.
Other Ansial Interactions
Ansial may cause drowsiness and confusion.
Because of that, you shouldn't drive, operate dangerous machinery, or participate in any risky activities until you know how Ansial affects you.
You should also avoid drinking alcohol while taking Ansial.
Don't drink large amounts of grapefruit juice with Ansial.
In a study in healthy volunteers, coadministration of Ansial (10 mg as a single dose) with itraconazole (200 mg/day for 4 days) increased plasma Ansial concentrations (13-fold increase in Cmax and 19-fold increase in AUC). These pharmacokinetic interactions were accompanied by an increased incidence of side effects attributable to Ansial. If the two drugs are to be used in combination, a low dose of Ansial (e.g., 2.5 mg q.d.) is recommended. Subsequent dose adjustment of either drug should be based on clinical assessment.
Pregnancy Category B
No fertility impairment or fetal damage was observed in reproduction studies performed in rats and rabbits at Ansial doses of approximately 30 times the maximum recommended human dose. In humans, however, adequate and well-controlled studies during pregnancy have not been performed. Because animal reproduction studies are not always predictive of human response, this drug should be used during pregnancy only if clearly needed.
Ansial is an azapirone that acts as a full agonist on the serotonin 1A (5HT1A) autoreceptor and as a partial agonist on the postsynaptic 5-HT1A receptor.
Taking certain antibiotics with Ansial can increase the levels of Ansial in your body. This raises your risk of side effects. Your doctor may change your dosage of Ansial if you’ll be taking it with one of these drugs. Examples of these antibiotics include:
