Welcome to HealingWell. Buspar is one med people either love or seem to hate. I take it and I did not experience any side effects starting on the medication or increasing this med.
Others have had many of the same concerns you have posted "it took away my imagination", "felt a little foggy for the first few days" and "mild dizziness". However many of the people who use this medication stated their symptoms went away after a few days to a week and they liked the medication.
I would give it a fair chance as like most medications it takes a bit of time for the dose to reach a therapuetic level in your blood.
