It seems to me like buspar is one of the first things that doctor's try for anxiety and depression. I started with that, then went to paxil, then zoloft, then prozac, to effexor, then serzone, welbutrin and then back to effexor. So maybe that is a pattern for finding what works for us. It took me a lot of tries to find what was right for me, I hope that you can find something sooner than I did.
Usually most people will get the side effects first. I get the benefits first and then the side effects later. So I would always think something was working and then the side effects would hit me and never leave until I changed the medications. Or stopped them, but then I would get depressed and anxious again.
Good luck with that buspar
