Has anyone used buspar, normally for anxiety etc, wondering if it could help as a sleep aid, probably in a combo, maybe to reduce other meds for sleep with addition of buspar. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buspirone Medical uses Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) of very mild to moderate intensity, without any panic attacks (it is not generally considered to be effective, nor does it have regulatory approval for other types of anxiety disorders such as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and social phobia, with or without agoraphobia). Although not FDA approved for the indication, it is sometimes used off-label for augmentation of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) therapy against depression. Pharmacology Buspirone functions as a serotonin 5-HT1A receptor partial agonist. It is this action that is thought to mediate its anxiolytic and antidepressant effects. Additionally, it functions as a dopamine D2, as well as ?1, and ?2-adrenergic receptor antagonist to a lesser degree, though these properties are generally undesirable in an anxiolytic and likely only contribute to side effects. cheers!!!
