    Buspirone

    Has anyone tried Buspirone for anxiety and is so would you recomend it ?
    I understand that it takes a couple of weeks to kick in but does not have the side effects of Citalopram or the addictiveness of Diazepam.

    Hi Decca

    Not used this med myself, but if you use the search facility at the top of this screen theres quite a few threads regarding this med.

    Hope that helps.

    Love

    Andrea

    Thanks Andrea, not much on there though.
    Thanks bet, I don't think anyone could wait 6 weeks to feel better.
    I guess I'll try Diaz. again.Doc. thought they weren't working for me 'cos I wasn't taking them every day.

    Decca - If Diazepam was working when you took it, and you weren't taking it necessarily every day, then that's great! You should take only 'as and when' ANYWAY, not as a regular regime unless you're in a terrible state. i too was recently prescribed Buspirone, there's quite a lot of threads about it on this website. I found i just felt worse and gave up which you're not supposed to do, but I certainly don't think it's a wonder drug. Drs just love to experiment sometimes... Janeyx

    Hi Janey,
    Yes Diaz was helping on the days I feel really tense and anxious, but the days in between were full of bad pa's. I guess that's why doc said to take one everyday,it's only a 2 mg tablet which he said was a very small dose and could take 3 or 4 a day.
    I'd much rather try to get by without anything at all really, but some days I just feel so tense I think I do need something
