Re: Buspar?

In reply to Buspar?, posted by Noa on April 22, 2000, at 15:13:24

I took BuSpar for anxiety first after being dianosed and it did nothing for me. My new doc calls it "The World's Most Expensive Placebo". I've read where it has helped some people, but they are far and few between. I was changed over to Xanex which has been very helpful for me. The drawback to that is that Xanex is VERY strong and takes me out of the ballgame when I take more than a 1/2mg. It is also highly addictive when taken regularly for more than a couple of months. There must be a middle ground out there for you. I wish I had more info for you, but I'm still relatively new to the game. Hope this helps.


> I need to change my med cocktail somewhat--this one not working enough: effexor xr 375; synthroid and cytomel; ritalin sr 20 mg 2x/day; and serzone 225 in the evening.
> One thought is to add buspar and eventually lower the effexor. I have heard buspar is mediocre as an anti-anxiety, but one doc I have consulted says he has seen good results with it as an AD augmenter.
> I looked for some research on it, and found nothing. Any thoughts?
