Kate,

How much buspar are you taking? You are taking it with a psychostimulant right? I could never tolerate more than 7.5mg of Buspar in a single dose. It would make me feel like I was "smothering" (difficulty breathing) and my heart would race a little bit. Also, I would feel this cool "tingle" work its way up my spine while it was peaking. Frantic, eh? Watch out for any hostility reaction. It made me very, very hostile! I think it is the a-2 antagonism by its metabolite. Remeron made me very hostile as well and it is an a-2 antagonist. I am not sure why I seem to be adversely affected by meds that antagonize those particular receptors, but they do. I definitely wouldn't call buspar an antipsychotic!
