Buspin 10mg is a prescription medicine manufactured by Instas pharmaceuticals. It is classified as an anxiolytic, which helps to reduce feelings of anxiety, and may alleviate some of the most common symptoms of anxiety such as lack of sleep. Although Buspin 10mg is not chemically related to Benzodiazepines, the medicine produces a similar calming and relaxing effect.
How Buspin Works
Buspin tablets contain 10mg of the active ingredient Buspirone. Buspirone works by binding to the 5HT1A serotonin receptor in the body, resulting in greater levels of serotonin in the brain. Serotonin is considered to be the body’s ‘happy hormone’, and is responsible for stabilising mood and creating feelings of calmness and relaxation.
Buspar is often prescribed to treat:
- Generalised anxiety disorder (GAD)
- Short term anxiety
- Secondary symptoms of anxiety such as sleep disorders
Buspin 10mg may be used to treat anxiety in people who have failed to respond to Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), or who are unable to take SSRIs due to side effects.
Your doctor may advise you to take Buspar 10mg tablets between once and three times per day. You may start at a low dose, and have your dosage gradually increased until desired results are achieved. It is important to take the medicine as prescribed.
Buspin 10mg tablets can be taken with or without food. Even if you feel that the medicine is not working, it is important to complete the full course as the effects may not be seen for up to 4 weeks after you start taking the medicine. If you miss a dose, skip and take the next dose as normal. Do not take a double dose.
