    I am currently on 40 mg. of Celexa which I take in the morning, as well as 5 mg. of BuSpar 3 times daily. I attend therapy once weekly and I have deepend my practice in Zen Buddhism. This combination has helped me a great deal! I also have OCD, Depression and possibly Borderline Personality Disorder.

    demandingness
    entitlement

    Buspar's Side Effects Include the Following:

    Headache
    Chest pain
    Light headedness
    Nervousness
    Ringing in ears
    Sore throat
    Dream disturbances
    Dizziness
    Nasal congestion
    Nausea
    Confusion
    Depression
    Diarrhea
    Insomnia
    Movement disorders
    Numbness
    Racing heartbeat / palpitations
    Tachycardia
    Restlessness
    Rigidity
    Tremors
    Chest Pain

    BuSpar is a NON-sedating anxiolytic (meaning an anti-anxiety drug.) Unlike most anxiolytic's it posses a mild STIMULANT effect and effectivly acts as a sleep INHIBITOR. Stimulants seem to make Anxiety worse in people and sometimes are actually a cause. BuSpar is an atypical stimulant for this reason, and seems to promote wakefulness and excitment without causing anxiety. BuSpar causes robust increases in concentrations of Dopamine and Norepinephrine, and acts as an agonist at 5HT1 recptors. 5HT1, acts as an antianxiety receptor and stimulation of this recepter increases confidence and comfort levels. Headaches and muscle tension are often improved by BuSpar. All other 5HT receptors are actually blocked and not allowed to fire from BuSpar. 5ht2, 5ht3, ect all cause and increase anxeity, therefore by blocking them anxiety is effeciently releived. For this reason, BuSpar is often prescribed to pateint's who have a combination of A.D.D. and Anxiety, where treatment with traditional stimulants would be innapropriate and likely make the previously existing condition worse. The generic form of BuSpar is called "Buspirone". Traditional dosing starts at 5 mg. every three hours, and is increased if needed, according to individual results.

    Hope this helps. :
