I've been on Buspar for 3 weeks. First week it was 7.5 mg. Second and third week it was 7.5 twice a day.
I haven't noticed any dramatic improvement, though I do think the past two weeks have been very manageable and low stress.
My doc is increasing dosage to 15 mg twice a day. I've read that various people report this is a good level that works. So will let you know how it goes. Only side effects are tiredness in late afternoon, and sometimes eyes a bit bloodshot. (I know 60 mg is max. Don't want to go that high.)
Funny thing when I went to 7.5 mg twice a day, the bill was $60 with insurance! Initial dose of 7.5 once a day was $30.
But when it increased to 15 mg twice a day -- the bill was only $8.50!! Weird.
If anyone else is on the Buspar trail, let me know how it's going. My doc has seen very good results with Buspar, so I'm interested to see
where things will go on the new dosage for weeks 4-6. As I say, anxiety level has been fairly low so I'm not complaining.
