I've been on the klonopin train for years and it still is effective but I want to get off of the caboose... I hear horrible things about other antianxiety drugs.

I wanted to try buspar but good lord, the side effects probably say "death". I'm looking for an answer that my doctors have been evading for years and all this time I've been suffering!
You mentioned two different drugs: BuSpar and Risperdal. This drugs are very different in what they are labeled to treat. BuSpar is for the treatment of anxiety disorder while Risperdal is for schizophrenia and manic/depressive disorder. BuSpar is a satisfactory alternative to Klonopin. It must be taken several times a day starting at a lower dose and working up. It must always be taken the same way. ALways with food or always without, but not alternate between the two. You may experience some side effects in the beginning, these are ususally transient.
