Since you will be seeing your doctor so soon, it would seem reasonable to talk to him about trying the Buspar. You want to keep the Klonopin on board until the Buspar has a chance to work. You can mention the EMDR to him if you want, but if he rolls his eyes, just drop it. Psychiatrists do EMDR, but it has been primarily in the domain of psychology for most of its existence, so many psychiatrists are either unaware of it or don't believe it's possible for a treatment to work so fast (I'm quite a skeptical person and I thought it was just a scam until I started seeing actual and permanent results from it through one of my supervisors in residency). Now, however, there is scientific research using PET scans and SPECT scans (these are like MRI's except that they show activity of the brain rather than just structure) that is showing that real changes are occuring in the brain during and after EMDR. Anyway, if the doctor agrees to the trial of Buspar and it will be a couple of months before you see him, you may just want to get the prescription and try the EMDR before starting the Buspar. There are 2 therapists is New Hampshire (I looked again at this list and these are instructors so they are highly trained and have been doing it for years; there are sure to be others as well in case these two aren't near you), Debbie Korn, Psy.D. in Nashua (800) 866-9006 ext1806 and Roger Poire, Psy.D. in Gilford and Dover (603) 528-4405 or (603) 749-2729. Hope these numbers are current.
