One of our former moderators was on Buspar, and liked it while her anxiety was on the lower end. (for GAD)
However, it tends to not cover more acute anxiety/panic...so it really just depends on your needs and what you need in terms of maintenance.
I am not as familiar with any increased anxiety along with startup...like with an SSRI/A/D...however, I read that it does work on the Serotonin receptors, so it would stand to reason that it could have this initial effect.
Use your coping skills to get you through...this should be a temporary challenge.:)
Wishing you the best...and update when you can. We'll keep you encouraged!
