I felt a difference in the first week when I started Buspar. I started on 10mg 2x's a day, but after about 3 weeks I went down to 5mg 2x's a day because I was feeling so tired. From everything I've read most people feel some relief from anxiety in weeks 1-2, but it could take anywhere from 6-8 weeks. I've also read that it's a strange med and it either works really well for some people or it just doesn't work at all. The change I noticed was that I didn't need to plan everything down to the last detail and worry so much before I had plans or errands to run. Also when I was stressed and upset, I got over it and moved on much faster than before. But I still rely on Klonopin for panic attacks. I think maybe once I have weaned off that completely I can up to dose of Buspar without feeling so tired and maybe that will help with panic attacks. How long have you been taking Buspar?
