I have had a lot of help from the Buspirone! I am on 20mg a day. It helps me deal with stress a lot! Before taking it I was crying all of the time, now that I'm taking it I don't cry nearly as often. We're thinking of upping my does a bit more. I haven't noticed any side effects from it. I think it says it can lower libido, but I definitely haven't noticed a problem there.
I am so glad that my doctor figured out that my problems that I thought were caused by depression were actually anxiety! I had been on four different antidepressants over the last decade, and none of it helped. I was on Zoloft, which made me very easy to anger; Paxil made me not want to do anything at all (I even got to the point where I wouldn't get up to pee); and I don't even remember what the other two were called, but they made me have issues with short term memory. Buspirone works wonderfully!
I am 28 years old.
Meds: Buspirone for anxiety, multi vitamin, vitamins d and c, trying to find an iron supplement that my body will digest and keep down, Oxycontin and Oxycodone for pain (working on weening from them), Prednisone, and Azathioprine. Had an allergic reaction to Remicade.
