Hi Matt,

It's nice to see another brave guy come home safe :-) My son's brother just came back from Iraq (again) a few weeks ago, he just surprised us and popped in. He said it was boring this time, he's with the 101st. Before he left, someone slammed an armoured humvee door on his leg and broke his ankle. Got a nice reenlistment bonus though.

I'm surprised they let you go over there with an anxiety disorder. Are you in the Army? When i was in the AF, I couldn't even go to Atlanta Georgia for an operations evaluation type exercise while on Effexor. So I quit the Effexor and was able to get my orders 2 days before departure. It seemed odd that people were allowed to have anxiety and be "deployed", but not be on medications and be deployed. Well, I know they have changed the regulations recently for the Air Force. My military doctors were the best doctors in the world.

I'm in a similar situation-trying to find a remedy for anxiety. I take Buspirone 30 mg. x 2; and was taking Adderall but the Adderall didn't work out. I'm not yet sure if the anxiety will be contained w/Buspar, but it has almost no side effects. If you hadn't tried that one, it's worth a try. I was thinking of switching to prevent a possible reoccurence of anxiety when my stressors increase again, but nothing seems to appeal to me right now--especially with the cognitive issues you described; I'm trying to graduate from school.

Oh-do you take magnesium, Vitamin B and all that too? I'm not one of the medical geniouses here, but if you haven't tried Buspirone, you might want to think about it.

Good luck :))
