BuSpar for Anxiety Treatment
The prescription medication BuSpar® (buspirone hydrochloride) can help treat a number of symptoms related to anxiety, including:
- Feeling tense, fearful, or apprehensive
- Feeling shaky, jittery, or nervous
- Unexplained sweating or trembling
- Avoiding certain places or activities because of fear.
Although it's not completely clear how the drug works, it is thought to improve symptoms by affecting serotonin and dopamine, which are chemicals in the brain. This medication comes in tablet form and is usually taken two to three times a day.
