buspirone does something to dopamine receptors. i've had more nightmare problems with dopamine meds (neuroleptics, stimulants, pain killers after minor procedures) than from psych drugs that touched any other part of the brain. and so...

I don't remember buspar giving me hellish dreams, but I'm not you. it makes sense to me, at any rate. some people -- not many, but some people -- swear by buspirone. one of many former prescribers told me that it works best with ssri/ssnri medications already on board. so...I dunno?

the decision to continue treatment or stop is ultimately yours to make. personally, if the dreams are -that- bad, I'd do a quick risks vs benefits run down, with the benefits section focusing on whatever good things buspar has done and is doing -right now- , not what might possibly come to pass in another couple of weeks or with a dosage adjustment, etc. but that's me. and i am not you, obviously.
