Re: Buspar dosage?
Sep 20, 2009
I don’t take Buspar any longer, as my anxiety level is rather high and Buspar is most effective for mild to moderate anxiety. I had good results with Buspar, but for me, Buspar alone wasn’t quite enough. I opted to switch to Paxil, rather than add something else to Buspar. My anitial starting dose on Buspar was 5 mgs twice a day and I eventually moved up to 30 mgs daily in two equally divided doses. I also suffer from OCD, and found Paxil to work well for both anxiety and OCD. That is the other reason I opted to switch over to Paxil. I think if your anxiety is on the mild to moderate side, you will probably find Buspar to work well for you. Give it at least six weeks to see the full benefits. I think taking Ativan as needed during the start up phase of Buspar is a good idea, as it can lessen some of the side effects like increased anxiety that can come from starting this type of medication. Good luck, and just hang in there.
