You say Buspar is made by Bristol Myers Company. If they are still making it, why can't I get it from any Pharmacy and their Drug Distributors are saying that Name Brand Buspar is not available for them to order. Is Bristol Myers still making any dosage of Buspar and if so, how does someone who has been on it for 15 years obtain it now? This is really a difficult situation as I am going to have to use the Generic version and it does not work nearly as well as name brand does. I really need some sound advise asap.
