Hello....I thought I would join in on this message board. I got into see my doctor yesterday. I had been taking Zoloft 50 mg for the past couple of weeks along with Xanax as needed for Severe Anxiety due to numerous stress/problems going on in my life right now....although, I have suffered anxiety as long as I can remember!!! He wrote me a script for Buspar and said to take that as needed and see how that helps....he said NOT to take it if I am going to be taking the Xanax...but he said that it has been known to really help with anxiety without the addictive side effects. But I will say this..Xanax really does help take away my panic attack issues and severe anxiety....My dcotor also said that sometimes when you are first starting an anti-depressent it can get worse before it gets better, anxiety being one of the initial side effects that comes out.

What I am very confused about though...even after talking to him, the pharmacist.....Is how do I know when to take the buspar (if it is only as needed) or when to take the Xanax (if it is only as needed)

Buspar I read also said it can take up to weeks to work...I am very confused.....But that is a good alternative med, without the worry of dependency
