Hi guys,
I don't have any personal experience with this med, I'm afraid, but I have read other posts about it helping, and you might find this webpage informative:
Good luck with it!

I am pretty sure we have some members who are or were on this med. Hang in there and I am sure they will pop in.

I think it is one of the milder meds and I am sure like Normal said peeps on it will post
I think if your doc has RX you should at least give it a shot ...Just my opinion

I was on buspar a while ago after my psych took me off of meclizine.  I could hardly tell the buspar was working at first.  I think he said you would have to take it regularly for a few weeks to a few months to see any real results.  I guess it worked because my anxiety went away for a time but it was a really gradual change. I didn't have any side effects.

i guess it's common sense, i'll just have to wait and see. as long as there are no bad side affects, what's the harm? i'm just used to that quick xanax fix. weeks seem like years away. i gotta do something tho' thurs i had such a attack that i couldn't make it out of the house to see my shrink! so he phoned in my new scrip for buspar.
