Re: Buspar, anyone?!

I am so sorry to hear about your recent trauma. Have you considered going to any sexual assault support groups or 1-1 therapy with a counselor specializing in trauma? It might be good to speak with an expert, and/or get the support of others who are dealing with the same thing.

As for the meds, I say give Buspar a try. I'm on it, and like it in general, but find it dulls my affect a bit (not interested in the usual things, kind of blase in general). There are lots of good antianxiety meds out there though. The one thing I would worry about with the Buspar is that it is said to take up to 3-4 weeks to take "full" effect, and your anxiety sounds severe. If you're not helped by buspar and your doc is not responsive to that, find another doc. Best of luck to you, and God bless you.
