Does BuSpar work for anxiety? HELP!

Posted by jason on June 25, 1999, at 11:40:14

I'm 24 years old and have experienced excessive anxiety most of my teenage and adult life. I took Prozac for about a year during high school, then quit taking it. A couple of years ago, the anxiety became so bad that I had to take action again. My counselor prescribed 20 mg of Paxil and it worked quite well with the exception of sexual dysfunction (unfortunately the worst side effect I could imagine). I dropped down to 10 mg of Paxil after about a month and it worked wonderfully for about six months. At that point, I quit taking it and have been fine for the most part up until recently. My anxiety is compounded by a lot of factors in my life (a job I hate, a new relationship, etc), but I've got to find a way to get it under control before I ruin my life! I've been doing some research and it appears that BuSpar has the least likelihood of side effects and that it is the least sedating (a problem I had with Paxil). Would anyone like to share their experiences with BuSpar? BuSpar in conjunction with any other medications?
