hi rick, the maximal daily dose of buspar is 60 mg/day and i'm sure some doctors (especially psychs) would go higher than that although that is not in the product indication (thus theyd be using it "off label" at such a high dosage) so if you up the dose to 30 mgs/day it should be ok, and in fact that is the therapeutic dosage for buspar. lots of docs use buspar and an benzo with their patients although more in the effort of weaning the patient off the benzo. one difference that you're probably aware of in buspar versus the benzos is that it will not make you sedated as the benzos do, so you mention you will not give up the klonopin for sleep. i'm not sure about high levels of caffeine although personally i doubt if that is beneficial for anyone's health let alone someone also on psychotropic meds... (guiltily sipping some decaf as i type).
