BusPar has worked very well for me. I have been taking it for 2 months.10mg 3x day. I don't get upset over little things that life throws at me anymore. No bad side effects, I will continue taking it.

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??
