Buspar--Cautiously Optimistic

Recommended Posts

I have been told by my weekly peer group that I also have anxiety. Last week, I talked to my doctor and she put me on Buspar -- 5 mg twice a day. So far, I've felt less anxious and have been able to focus on a long project.  I don't know how much this is the placebo effect. But I'll take it. I don't feel like I have the Sword of Damocles over my head.

BuSpar can be quite helpful, my psychiatrist spoke very highly of it. It's obviously not as strong as benzos but it can help take the edge off and make anxiety much more manageable and unlike benzos it's not habit-forming. Glad it's helping!

I've noticed that it's made me slightly hypomanic. Not the crazy, cascading snarling snakes that Prednisone or Wellbutrin did (I once punched the side of a subway car in frustration). It's more like a rolling boil than it is a torrent. Exclamation points every other paragraph rather than every sentence.
