> Just some general observations on Buspar... There is indeed an abundance of literature and research supporting Buspar's use for a variety of purposes. Some research, especially for SSRI augmentation, sounds downright convincing. But in real life it's difficult to find anyone who has actually been maintained with good results on it.

James here...

Same thing I am hearing. Asked my first Pdoc about it as it was comming out and she said that the hope was Buspar would become the gold standard for anxeity, allowing people to move off of benzo's. Present pdoc says it has not proven to be the Prozac or Tofrinil for anxeity. Does work in some. In higher doses or long term some get the nasty antipsychotic like side effects.

If I had a need to try it and did not have insurance I would ask for samples and if it worked
try an appeal to the manufacture's compassionate use program or go thru www.the to get it 4free.
