    Question Looking for BuSpar Info.

    Hi everyone!

    My dr. gave me an rx a couple of days ago for BuSpar. I got the rx filled but haven't gotten up the courage yet to take any. I went through an addiction/withdrawal ordeal a couple of years ago with Xanax and ever since then I'm scared to death everytime I need to take anything new.

    Any info. anyone can give will be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks

    Buspar is not a Benzo or narcotic, it's not addicting, and it takes a while to take effect. Maybe a week or two. It's OK by me. It took away about 75% of my anxiety, but I still have breakthroughs from time-to-time. It's not addicting at all..it's not that kind of drug. I would suggest the anxiety board for more information on Buspar. I hope you find good info there on it.

    Re: Looking for BuSpar Info.

    Thanks you guys for the info. I really appreciate it.

    MsMinn. The problem I had with the xanax was that I (or at least my body) quickly became addicted, even though I wasn't taking the amount my dr. prescribed. Most days I'd only take 1 pill, or 1/2 of of one. I started having all kinds of weird sensations in my chest, like it was sinking down into my body when I would be lying in bed at night. Weird very realistic dreams......would startle back awake when i had just (finally) fallen asleep. Also began having severe muscle twitches/tremors. My jaw would even move side to side on it's own from the muscle tremors. I would have to hold my jaw with my hands to be able to go to sleep. Phychologically (sp?), I didn't have a desire to take the xanax, but my body wanted it. Because of me only taking 1 or 1/2 pill a day instead of the 3 a day I was prescribed, not only did my body crave the xanax but I also began to experience withdrawal symptoms at the same time, which was a real fun time.

    Sorry for the long answer, but I ended up titrating myself off very slowly over several months. In the end I was taking only a sliver of a tablet until I finally stopped completely.

    The scary thing was my body became addicted within just a few weeks of beginning xanax. Maybe it's just my metabolism, or the fact that I'm diabetic, but I hope you have better luck than me. Also, I had taken xanax about 11 years ago with no problem whatsoever. Go figure!

    Hope this helps. Take care.
