Hello carrieanne and welcome to DC. I just want to mention here that every 'body' is different so you are not going to know in advance of actually trying it yourself. I would go with what your doctor is prescribing and really give it a chance to work. Perhaps you will be pleasantly surprised and feel much better than you think.
Is there a reason you want to try another combination because you aren't going to know how you do with that either. Your doctor, however, is better versed and knows you better. Can you at least try to see if this works for you for at least one month? One month isn't so long in the grand scheme of things.
What do you think about that?
I don't know about Buspar, but for me, I've been taking Gabapentin and Klonopin for 2 years now. Gabapentin certainly helps with sleeping, anger, panic disorder, and pain. A lot more but I can't remember just off the top of my head. I have to tell you that I gained weight, memory loss, and the longefty of life, from Gabapentin. I'm going to slowly get off of it because of short term memory loss. I have four docs that agree that I need to off me off it. I've taken Klonopin for many years, and I hope the Dr.'s don't take me off. I've already reduced Gab from 2400 mg to 1200 mg. I can't wait to get off of it completely and see if my memory improves. It sucks right now. You wouldn't believe it.
Our bodies are different and you may not have these problems. Have a chat with your doc and see what he thinks.
May you have peace, hope and love. Anna
