    Fluoxetine and Buspirone

    Has anyone ever tried this combo with success?

    Itís hard to say. Iím on week 3 and still very up and down. Afternoons and evenings I seem almost myself again. Which strangely was the pattern when I started on fluoxetine.

    I take 5mg 3 x a day, one at 5.30am, one at 11am and the last one at 4pm. Could the increased anxiety be because itís increasing the effect of my fluoxetine?

    Yes, it could be.

    If you don't see further improvement in the next week or two then the buspirone dose probably needs to be raised. Most augment studies used 30-45mg/day in 3 divided doses. 3 x 10mg/day is also the most common buspirone dose prescribed to diminish SSRI side-effects such as bruxism (teeth grinding) and sexual dysfunction.
