I keep seeing everyone saying they take it 2 or 3 times a day to start. My doctor prescribed 10mg once a day. I'm confused.
Is anyone else taking buspirone once a day?

Hello! Although buspirone is traditionally prescribed to be taken in divided daily doses your doctor may be looking for a dose that's effective while avoiding any potential side effects. If you need it the dosage can be increased at 5mg per day every few days, but try giving it a few weeks at your current dose to see if it will control your symptoms.
