Getting the most from your treatment
- Remember to keep your regular appointments with your doctor or clinic. This is so your doctor can check on your progress.
- Taking Busiral may increase the time it takes for you to react and may impair your judgement. Because of this, your ability to drive could be affected.
- Busiral may make you feel sleepy. Do not drink alcohol while you are on Busiral tablets as it will increase the risk of this.
- If you are having any medical treatment, tell the person carrying out the treatment that you are taking Busiral.
- If you need to buy any medicines, check with a pharmacist that they are safe to take with Busiral.
Busiral and Xanax (alprazolam) are both used to treat anxiety and depression. Xanax is a sedative in the benzodiazepine family, while Busiral is chemically different. Xanax is habit forming and sudden stoppage can cause withdrawal symptoms.
The extent of the excretion in human milk of Busiral or its metabolites is not known. In rats, however, Busiral and its metabolites are excreted in milk. Busiral hydrochloride tablets administration to nursing women should be avoided if clinically possible.
My doctor said he was going to start me on Wellbutrin but he prescribed me Busiral 10 mg. I am confused about what the difference is if there is one and why he said it was Wellbutrin but isn't.
Because the effects of concomitant administration of Busiral with most other psychotropic drugs have not been studied, the concomitant use of Busiral with other CNS-active drugs should be approached with caution.
Diltiazem And Verapamil
In a study of nine healthy volunteers, coadministration of Busiral (10 mg as a single dose) with verapamil (80 mg t.i.d.) or diltiazem (60 mg t.i.d.) increased plasma Busiral concentrations (verapamil increased AUC and Cmax of Busiral 3.4-fold while diltiazem increased AUC and Cmax 5.5-fold and 4-fold, respectively.) Adverse events attributable to Busiral may be more likely during concomitant administration with either diltiazem or verapamil. Subsequent dose adjustment may be necessary and should be based on clinical assessment.

I JUST started taking 7.5 mg of Busiral yesterday, so today is Day #2. My Dr tried me on many, many antidepressants, none worked, all had horrific side effects. I even had the DNA test (cheek swabs) to see which ones would be best, and Pristiq was the ONLY antidepressant in the green. Guess what? HORRIFIC side effects! I was going to gut my situational anxiety out with yoga, meditation, Reiki, mindfulness, and CBD oil , but no could do. So far, no side effects and feel SOMEWHAT less anxious. I will check back in after 6 weeks.
Busiral may cause side effects. Tell your doctor if any of these symptoms are severe or do not go away:
- difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep
- feelings of anger or hostility
- increased sweating
Busiral - is it available in extended (slow) release tablets?

Busiral is an anti-anxiety medicine which is prescribed for short periods of time to help ease symptoms of anxiety. Although it is not clear how it works, it is thought to affect a brain chemical which may be involved in causing anxiety symptoms.
In a study in healthy volunteers, coadministration of Busiral (30 mg as a single dose) with rifampin (600 mg/day for 5 days) decreased the plasma concentrations (83.7% decrease in Cmax; 89.6% decrease in AUC) and pharmacodynamic effects of Busiral. If the two drugs are to be used in combination, the dosage of Busiral may need adjusting to maintain anxiolytic effect.

I was reading a lot of reviews trying to decide whether or not to take this. It does work for me, but it comes on soooooo slow. My doc told me I'd start to feel some benefit in a week. It took a full 3 weeks at 10mg 2x day to get some relief. I'm about 4 weeks in and anxiety is well controlled. It has a very short half life so you can feel it when it wares off and I need to take it 2-3× day. In the beginning I had a zombie feeling with anxiety. Now, I'm going much better. I have some depression still, but as a solo treatment it seems to do the trick for anxiety. Expect a full month for this to work.
Coadministration of Busiral with cimetidine was found to increase Cmax (40%) and Tmax (2–fold), but had minimal effects on the AUC of Busiral.
