I have never tried it, Fairy102. Just remember that different meds have different effects for different people. For more information about it, I'd suggest to talk to your Pdoc about this. Sending many hugs to you

I take it and have been on it for 2 years. The biggest mistake people make is thinking it will work quickly or that it will reduce panic attacks. I thought it wasnt working when I first tried it and then one day about 6 weeks in I woke up and realized I no longer felt that constant low level underlying anxiety that I always did. It has helped me to deal with stressful situations easier than before. If you have panic attacks a benzo could help in an acute situation.

The first day I took it I woke up in the middle of the night in a complete panic. Tried one more day, then gave up. Maybe I should have given it more time, but I was afraid of a repeat nightmare.

It caused me to eat 800 calories per meal, and per snack. I got off it, and lost a ton of weight. I have never heard of this happening with anyone else though. My doctor was very confused even though he knew it was the Buspar.

I really love Buspar it works great for me; I hardly have an anxiety becasue of it and I haven't had a panic attack since being moved to three times a day. I am on 30mg overall and I have noticed a big difference and it really does help me. It gives me a level of calmness I never knew I had. I also noticed on day I totally forgot to take two dosages of it; I could feel the anxiety coming back.
