Buspar is a strange drug. I took it for a few weeks a couple of times previously. I found it didn't do diddly-squat by itself. However, I combined it with desipramine one time and it made my anxiety much worse. I combined it with Celexa one time and I found a powerful anti-anxiety combo. there. The only problem was that all of my anxiety was replaced with hostility and aggression. I had to be very careful to make sure the Celexa dosage had the upper hand with the Buspar or I would get rages while on it.
