Initially at first I had dizziness and vomiting so I decided to break the 10mg pills to 5mg and take x6 a day. Worked like a charm, also an empty stomach helped avoid side effects.

So down the to experience. I am on day 10 of Buspar and I am extremely happy with the results. I had really bad anxiety on day 4 or 5 and it was horrible, I was about to quit buspar, Thank God!!! I didn't quit and came through it because now I have almost zero anxiety, I would almost compare this to a benzo working efficiently. I still have more months to go to reap benefits. So excited to finally find my one and only anti anxiety med.

I would give this med about 3.5/5 stars because I still have worry-related thoughts, It just gets rid of physical anxiety.
wow lucky you. i took 10 mg yesyerday, felt so dizzy. Today i have not taken anything yet, but i feel my anxiety is much higher than usuall. Does it increase anxiety before it works, and how long should i expect this to last? Btw doesen't it produce more side effects if you take it on an empty stomach?
