I have been taking Klonapin for over 3 years to help with I guess anxiety. They have tried over the past 11 years many different anti-depressants, I have had some bad experiences on some, to the point when they talk about adding one again it scares me to the point I truly have an attack. I am pregnant and they wanted me off the Klonapin. So they just gave me the RX for Buspar. I worry over everything even things not under my control, then heart starts to race to the point all I can hear is it pounding. CAN BUSPAR HELP WITH THIS??? Any thoughts or comments would be truly helpful. Thank you all!
Yes Buspar can help you. Its different then taking benzos for it, you have to take it every day, and it takes a few weeks before it works, but if you're patient it can be very effectual. It works to prevent them, unlike the benzos that work to get rid of them after they start.
Hello Mommy of two. In the case of panic attacks, if I were the perscribing physician would not perscribe Buspar. Its generally perscribed for GAD. Not very effective for panic attacks to say the least. Regards pledge
Hello Mommy of two,
Trust me I no what u are going through for I have panic with agoraphobia, I also take klonopin, but can understand why the doctor doesn't want u on it being pregnant, as far as Buspar goes alot of people take it and it helps them with anxiety, for that is what it is prescribes for among other things I am sure... I tried it and it didn't work for me not strong enough for how bad I get, but each person is differant, just because it didn't work for me doesn't mean it won't work for u, I say listen to ur doctor try it, and if it don't work they will help u I am sure of it... good luck and GOOD BLESS U AND YOUR CHILD...
