I started on 15mg/day of BuSpar, in 3 divided doses, and I *think* I only went up to 30mg. That still probably isn't enough for depression, though, and I've thought about trying it again. (I don't think I have a primary anxiety disorder.)

I didn't notice any side effects except maybe a little dizziness.

That's awful about your insurance! It really upsets me to hear things like that. I wonder if they'd cover it if it was prescribed by your GP?

I think that most insurance companies will cover the psych medications, especially since a lot of them have multiple uses some of which are not psychiatric, but coverage of therapy sessions is more variable.

How to distinguish between anxiety and side effects: if it was there before you started the drug, it's probably your regular anxiety. If it showed up when you started taking the med (or increased the dose), it might be a side effect.

You might find it less of a roller-coaster if you divided the dose in three instead of two.
