Buspirone and alcohol interactions can occur.
Buspirone can cause certain side effects in some individuals, such as drowsiness and fatigue. Drinking alcohol can cause these side effects to become worse, since alcohol affects the central nervous system.
Drinking alcohol while taking buspirone may cause increased side effects, such as drowsiness. In severe cases, this combination may lead to memory problems, problems with muscle control, and breathing difficulties. Individuals who are taking buspirone should avoid drinking alcohol, especially in larger amounts.
