Hey Sue,

Hi this is Kitt............on the Ad's they usually recommend you give them a fun 6 weeks and maybe even 8 weeks. What is your dose of cymbalta ?  Losts of the members have used Klonopin and buspar is not one I am real familiar with.

I use cymbalta at 60 mg per day.  I was as high as 120 mg a day but got into some not so good side effects at that high of a doze.

Hope you soon start to feel better.

Hugs

Kitt

I'm currently on Cymbalta and I used to take buspar.

IMHO the Buspar did "nothing" for me, but it does work for some (I took it for about 3 months)

Im taking 60 mgs of the cymbalta and .5 mgs of the klonopin and for another week i will b taking 7.5 mgs 2 times a day of the buspar then I will go up to to 15 mgs 2 times of day of the buspar so im hoping it will work I would love to come off of the klonopin but dr said i would have to do that very slowly.

My daughter is on Cymbalta and Lamictal and has had very good results with those two. I just started Klonopin along with several other drugs I take. My doc switched my over to it from Xanax as he says it is longer acting. So far it seems fine.

Good luck! Med adjustments are always frustrating and irritating!
