What is your experience with taking Buspar for your anxiety? My psychiatrist finally wants to give me a medication for my anxiety, but I wanted your thoughts or suggestions for other meds?

      i didn't notice any difference whatsoever when taking buspar personally lol however, i also had no side effects. i've heard great things about it from friends though, i think it's a good medication

      It saved my life. I had constant low level panic attacks before buspar, and afterwards they went away

      I have been taking it for 5 years, and it's been a life saver for me.

      It worked for a couple of months but gave me really weird side effects, so I had to stop.

        @DragonLady47 i thought it was short for busperion. Is it not?

          @CinnamonChild Buspirone is the off brand of Buspar.

      I've been on Buspar for a while and the way I describe it is that it doesn't make you feel like a zombie. It's very subtle and a huge help.

        @songbird67 My psychiatrist just put me on gabapentin yesterday and I’ve been using propranolol for panic attacks in public. She wants me to wait and see what gabapentin does before she gives me buspar

          @Floof96 the panic attacks that I had in public were never as bad as that ones I had at home. I'm so sorry that you are dealing with that! I really hope the Gabapentin helps you!

      I’m on it now. I’m actually weaning off other anti anxiety medication. It is helping
