I'm thinking its best taken with food because I took it before breakfast this morning and a liitle while after I took it I got really sick to my stomach for a bit.
It shouldn't make any difference, but taking it with food won't affect how it's metabolized. But always take it the same way at the same time as Buspar has a very short half-life.
From what reading Ive done it either works really well for you or not at all.
Very true when taken on its own for anxiety and unfortunately mostly its a case of it being less effective than M&Ms. It also only works for GAD and maybe social phobia. However, when taken with a SSRI it can significantly increase the effectiveness of the antidepressant and reduce some of its side-effects too. In the adjuvant role it seems to work for most to some degree.
