I've been on Buspar for only about a week -- 15mg, split into two doses, without food. I woke up this morning with a painful and crusty right eye (lovely, right?) -- I see that pink eye can be a (less common?) side effect of Buspar. I was wondering if anyone else had experienced this while on Buspar. If so -- does it go away with one initial treatment, or was it a reoccurring/ongoing infection?

So far I don't really feel any different on this drug, but am willing to stick it out for a few more weeks to see if I've got the brainstuffs that respond to it. But if I'm going to have constant eye problems on it, no thanks.

I am also on 40mg once daily of Celexa. I'm just at the beginning of addressing and seeking diagnosis/treatment for my problems, and am so far working with my GP and a counsellor. I'm fairly inexperienced with all medications and just don't really know what to expect.

This is my first time posting and please feel free to link me to a different thread if this has already been addressed elsewhere -- I couldn't find it.

Pink eye is a bacterial infection.  It has nothing to do with BuSpar - they must have just had someone report getting conjunctivitis during the trial of the medication, which would be nothing but coincidence and listed it, although I have no clue why.
