... on called Buspar. The highest dose that people can take is up to 60 mgs. I, however, only started taking 10 mg per day about 10 days ago. It does help with the anxiety and works with the depression also because it doesn't work like Valium, Klonopin, or Xanax. ... (4 replies)
... Hi! You may want to ask you doctor about Buspar/ (generic-Buspirone HLC).

In a week she was fine. But the Omega 3 was recommended... (4 replies)
... Gosh, there are none that I know of. If I needed something to try and calm me down I would try meditation and prayer. If I still could not get my heartrate to slow down, I would make an appt w/ a contemporary med doctor, such as an internal med doc who specializes in addiction. A reg doc will not know if something is addicting or not. Goodluck and Im glad you asked about... (4 replies)

... Bridget: The mental stuff. I don't know if I'd call it the next step/obstacle, but it is a hurdle. I think a part of what makes the mental something you need to over come is how easy it was, once you took the pills to feel that everything is OK. "Not enough money to pay the light bill?"
