I was recently reading about a drug related to Buspar. It's called tandospirone. The claims I've read is that 30 - 60 mg of tandospirone has efficacy comparable to that of benzodiazepines. (Ativan, Klonopin, etc.) Since it's related to Buspar, it doesn't carry the risk of dependency or tolerance that a benzodiazepine would.
The suggested dosage is 30 mg a day, taken three times in 10 mg tablets. Dosages as high as 60 mg were said to be extremely effective.
I'm wondering if anyone has ever tried tandospirone, and can vouch for its effects.
