Mirtazapine initial side effects, or is it the Buspar?

I was prescribed 15mg Mirtazapine nightly and 15mg Buspar twice daily. I took them for 3 days but this feeling is horrible! My doctor warned me that I wouldn't like this feeling, but if I gave it a couple weeks I would see the proper effects. I don't know if I can handle this for 2-3 weeks. I have a family to care for and I can't do my job feeling like this. I need some encouragement. I've read all the posts on Mirtazapine and I am just so confused. I want a magic pill to take away this anxiety! My anxiety was down, but the feeling I did have wasn't any better. Does the zombie-like feeling go away? And what about the Buspar? I don't like the way it makes me feel either. I took prozac for 13 1/2 years and it never made me "feel" anything, I never felt drugged. I simply felt better. But it lost it's magic. I took lexapro for a few months then decided I needed to know what/who I was without meds. Fine for a few months then the depression came back. Now the SSRI's shoot my anxiety through the roof.

What else can I take? This is so frustrating.

Thank you for listening.
