I was on Lexapro for three years and was going happy. I was also single. I found out my sex drive had almost completely diminished once I got into a serious relationship. Trying to find a solution, I had nightmare experiences getting off Lexapro and dealing with Viibryd, then moved to Buspar.

The drug is usually used for short term periods but I have GAD. I started taking 10mg twice a day and when that didn't work, I upped it until I was taking upward of 50mg per day, per my doctor's approval.

I think I got serotonin disorder because after three or four weeks, no matter how hard I tried, I was confrontational, and my anxiety was rampant. I always had a lump in my throat. I told my doctor the medication was NOT for me.

I've been on Lexapro for two days again and dropped my Buspar down to 10mg once a day immediately. Like night and day, I feel wonderful!

Why isn't Buspar maintenance dosing documented and why didn't my doctor tell me about this? Surely this can't be due to the Lexapro since there really isn't any in my system? I am about to call him back to refill my Buspar yet again.
