My daughter started a new medication today, Buspirone, 5 mg.

Customer Question
She took it at 12:30pm...
My daughter started a new medication today, Buspirone, 5 mg. She took it at 12:30pm. It said to contact your doctor right away if she gets a fever. Of course, she got a fever at 9pm tonight. It's currently at 101.7.
Should I take more action (i.e. go to the ER)? or let her sleep?
Other symptoms included headache, fatigue, and nausea (which went away when she ate). These are all normal side-effects that are listed.
Thank you!

Her fever is now at 102.3 so it's climbing. When should I be really worried?

Drug action is slower and may take weeks for action to start. Please consult your treating psychiatrist for change to another drug.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
