I've only ever been on zoloft and xanax, but they both helped me alot! Perhaps you might want to see a psychiatrist and/or counselor to help you work through some of your anxiety. It can be helpful to have meds and therapy combined. Good luck!

I used it for a few months. It seemed to mellow me out without any drastic reactions. My doc suggested it's especially effective when mixed with an anti-depressant. I had no side effects but I think it took a couple weeks to kick in. Not like Ativan and Xanax that help within minutes. Good luck!

My 2nd GI prescribed Buspirone along with Elavil and I don't remember what problems I was having, but my mom asked her boss (who was a psychiatrist) and he said the two should NOT be prescribed together.  I left that GI because he was a moron anyway and started seeing a psychiatrist, who gave me Remeron instead, as it's supposed to be easy on the gut.  So, I don't know how well Buspirone would have helped on it's own, but I shouldn't have been taking it with the Elavil.
