Good Morning,

Buspirone is used to relieve nervousness, anxiety and tension. Constipation or diarrhea have both been reported by patients on Buspar according to the info I have read.

Have you tried increasing your fiber intake or using Fibercon or a similiar product? Just a thought. If this becomes a problem for you do talk with your physician.

Take care,

Another suggestion for the C is what I use, which is stool softners. They keep things soft and easier to pass. Good luck!
