I am taking 10mg 2X daily and trying to get used to it. It makes me extremely nervous most of the day. I still take a 0.25mg xanax if going to a crowded store or restaurant, usually 6-8 total a month. Maybe the Dr. has to raise my dose to 10mg X3 daily so I can hang in with just the Buspar??

I've been on buspar for almost 2 months now, and so far its effects on me have been positive. I can function better, think more clearly, and spend a lot less time worrying about things.

This medication has changed my life! I suffer from General Anxiety Disorder and Depression. In combination with Zolof Buspar has been a miracle worker. I can concentrate on my work, sleep well and no longer have panic attacks.
