I suffer from bad anxiety, PTSD and adjustment disorder from severe childhood abuse. I get stuck in flashbacks that I can't get out of for hours. The episodes cause panic attacks and can't breathe so I freak out even more. My doctor suggested 7.5 miligrams 3 times a day for long term, how does it help When I need something that second? I can't function as a human being 3 days a week. I feel like a psychopath and crave to be what I perceive as normal. Will this help me achieve this clarity and functionality or will I be a zombie. Pretty much what I want to know is will I be human and will it help now? Thank you for your time!

Have you tried it yet? I sounds like you haven't. By taking it 3 times a day, it should help to prevent these episodes. If you have problems after you've been taking it for a few weeks, call your doctor and he can adjust the dose.
It will not help now and a dr should not leave you without something for immediate use while the buspar gets in your system.
Buspar takes about a month to 5 weeks to getting results from it and any time you increase the med it takes that amount of time. For me it works great but it takes awhile to get to the dose where it works for you. I used Lorazepam to keep me out of the dark places and still use it on occasion when the bispar needs a little help
