It has certainly helped me quite a bit, and I have taken it for a good while now.

Good luck with your results.

It doesn't seem to have any side effects that I notice.

Buspar was prescribed for me in 2016 (10mg morning and evening). By the second week, I had weakness and fatigue for a couple of hours at mid-day. By week three, the weakness was lasting for even longer. I stopped the morning dose and the fatigue/weakness resolved. I continue to take 10 mg at night because it helps me sleep.

The only question I have about Buspar is where to find it.

It has been on backp-order from the manufacturer for the last several months.

I don't know what's going on at the production level.

I keep telling my pharmacists that I'm going to "get it on the street", which they find funny.

I also tell them that the current situation reminds me of the legendary pot famine of 1969, but they don't know what I mean.

I guess they never read the Freak Brothers cartoons.

I miss taking Buspar.

I never noticed any side effects, but found it to be a good anti-anxiety med.

I was on buspar for about six months approximately four years ago. I personally didn't feel like it helped me at all. However, I'm not sure whether that's because I was misdiagnosed as having anxiety when I actually had depression or whether it just didn't work.

I know some people who are on buspar who get on well with it. It's all different strokes for different folks. I was put on propanolol after buspar and I got on much better with that iirc.
