    it sucks.


    It's used mostly as an anti-anxiety drug. I've seen it given to people on ritalin a lot. I deffinately wouldn't classify it as much of a downer though. Unless you have anxiety problems you probably won't be interested in buspar. It has no affnity for benzo receptors and does not effect gaba binding. This pretty much eliminates any benzo-like effects.

    Buspar works on serotonine.

    I hate buspar. The only effects I got in up to 5 pills (unknown mg) was a weird feeling in my face. I didn't like it.

    Serotonine is a neurotransmitter(a substance which your body uses in the process of transmitting signals to cels.f.e. in your brain) 80% of your serotonine is in your bowels, 10% in your blood and 2% in your brain. Serotonine affects sleep, mood, hunger, dreams, hallucinations, bloodpressureand much more. There are various kinds of serotonine. All with different functions. For example: MDMA (the substance which should be in XTC) has a primairly effect on serotonine, uplifting your mood, making you dreamy, etc. Edited by: Alfa

    The odd thing is buspar's action is not entirely understood. Saying that it works on seratonin is pretty nondescript, but it is all one can really say. Well, it does has some affinity for d2-dopamine receptors as well - as if that is saying much. All that can really be said is the buspar is not in any way a recreational drug.


    Have you looked at the structure for buspar? theCAS is something like 8-[4-[4-(2-pyrimidinyl)-1-piperazinyl]butyl]-8-aza-spirodecane-7,9-dione monohydrochloride, depending of course on which ring you start your naming from.

    I would not suggest taking BuSpar for recreational purposes. The exact mechanism of BuSpar's action is unknown

    BusPar treats anxiety and Topomax is used to provide long term relief to
    treat migraine headache patients.

    I was on Buspar for several months, it works well for anxiety but takes about 2-5 days to take full effect. Buspar has no recreational value to it and even when used at doctor perscribed doses can have side affects thats are unplesent and anoying. stear clear of this drug unless your looking for long term anxiety relief

    You got xanax mixed up with buspar man. I think you are referring to the slang name for xanax, which is bars, and yea, bars are quite powerful little puppies.Edited by: raven3davis

    actually, the highest dosage buspar [buspirone] pill does come in bar form also.


    personally, i'm not so sure buspar has recreational value. my doc
    has me taking 2 of the bars every night for anxiety. i actually
    tried tapering off of them because i felt they weren't doing much, but
    i felt so horrible that i just went back on again and all was
    okay. anyhow, this is just my own personal experience.

    I think buspar works better has an anti-depressant then an Anti-anxiety
    med. I remember I took six of the 30mg bars just to see what would
    happen and it made my anxieties worst.[​IMG]

    buspar is a crappy antianxiety medication, it is only ever effective for people i refer to as "benzodiazapine virgins"... not only is it extremely weak the only way to abuse is to crush and snort... ooo and believe me u will feel it... u will wish u hadn't it. It makes u feel like shit, sick, tired but not in a pleasureable way... u will count the seconds till it goes away.

    I came across 15 buspirone (the generic name for BuSpar) 15mg bars once. I decided to take them as directed, 1 bar a day. I was anxious to see what kind of anti-anxiety effect I would experience. Of course, I was also curious to see whether buspirone had any abuse potential (at the recomended dosage.) I have mild anxiety and after 5 days I hadn't noticed anything different. There was a mild sensation of anxiolytic-like action, but I wondered then just as I wonder now if it was just placebo. I didn't experience any side effects personally, although I wouldn't be surprised if many people did since this drug seems to be somewhat a mystery. Buspirone works on the serotonin receptor 5-HT1a receptor, and also has dopamine D2 antagonist/agonist properties. These properties usually result in the release of prolactin. All in all, my asessment of buspirone is that in a theraputic setting, it might have mild to substancial benefits but as a drug of abuse, none whatsoever. I'd like to note, however, that after about 7 days of taking buspirone, I was driving in my car and felt much more cheerful then normal. This is what I mean when I say 'placebo' vs. buspirone's effects.

    The Combined Buspirone Thread

    Swim's research concluded that the pills are Buspirone Hydrochloride, a drugs used to treak anxiety. But that is all the info swim could obtain, and he thought this was the best place to bring his questions. He was wondering if anyone had any experience/insight/knowledge about this drug and the best method of using it recreationally. Any responses would be appreciated, thanks, peace...
