okay, so i currently take 4.5mg vraylar; 100mg pristiq; 40mg vyvanse; & my newest addition of 15mg buspirone twice a day. anyone going through anything similar? additionally, what are your thoughts on buspar? like i said, it's my newest med for persistent anxiety & im very unsure about it based on reviews & articles i've read. as far as treating anxiety, i've tried prozac, zoloft (both of which were to treat depression, but didn't help my anxiety at all - it worsened), hydroxyzine, propranolol, klonopin, & now buspar. i've taken the genesight test, and genetically, out of all SSRIs, SNRIs, etc., pristiq, fetzima, emsam & viibryd are the only ones that would have a positive effect on me, & i'm already taking pristiq, which is an SNRI. i haven't reacted well to many classes of anxiety medications & i’m gonna be so sad if buspar doesn't work out.

      I’m currently on buspirone (which helps a lot & I’ve had no problems with) and pristiq. Pristiq helped me in the past but I’m going to start weaning off both that & buspar soon because I just got on a mood stabilizer. Like I said, pristiq helped in the past, but I’m TERRIFIED to wean off it because I don’t do well with detox symptoms for SNRIs. Even if I miss it one day, the brain zaps are killer. I really do recommend buspar though; absolutely no side effects for me, no detox symptoms when I miss it, and it’s helped so much with my anxiety.
