> > I take 15 mg in the morning and 15 mg at night. It helps me sleep, but it doesn't put me to sleep, if you know what I mean. (I also take Klonopin in a tiny dose first thing in the morning.) Since Buspar is the only med I take 2x a day, I sometimes forget to take my second dose and find that my insomnia returns. Above 30 mg a day, and i want to sleep around the clock.

I don't know, since i've never taken K by itself. Unintentionally, however, I may receive some insight on this front. My prescription of Buspar is almost out (down to my last 10 mg pill) and due to a combination of circumstances, I will not be able to get a refill until Friday.

I would *guess*, from some hints of what I've read on this board, and from Buspar's general rep as a synergistic drug, that the Buspar gives the K some help in the anxiolysis department. It would be a little ironic if this were true, since I gather that Buspar was once billed as a nonaddicting alternative to the benzodiazepines. I do know for sure that before I added the Klonopin (.25 mg am) I was having anxiety attacks regularly.
