    Mary - Weight gain while taking Buspar is apparently not reported very frequently. This does not mean that you won't gain any weight while taking it because everyone reacts to medication differently. However, if you eat responsibly, exercise, and don't have any other major health changes it may not be a problem.

      I have a question - I used to be on Prozac for anxiety and it ended up helping ease my IBS-C problems tremendously. Problem was, I gained weight on it which in turn increased my anxiety all over again. I am searching for new anti-anxiety med (I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder) and am wondering if there is any data on Buspar with IBS patients.
