days to a month and it will PREVENT anxiety attacks but doesn't help you if you are having one and take it like Klonopin or Xanax. Doctors say I am too young althought I am 27, to be taking those medications as they can be adictive. But what am I to do if I am having one? I have only had the buspar for two days and I have alot of anxiety.
BuSpar is a prescription anxiety medication. It is approved for the short-term treatment of anxiety symptoms and anxiety disorders.
BuSpar is not related to any other anxiety medications. Unlike most anxiety medications, it is not useful for preventing seizures, relaxing muscles, or treating insomnia. It is not known exactly how the medication works to treat anxiety, although it is known that it affects several chemicals in the brain. In particular, it likely affects serotonin and dopamine in the brain.
However, a doc/pharmacist would address your question better as he/she prescribed the med. take care, & please seek medical advice.
No buspar does not work as an as needed drug. You need to have a blood level much like antidepressants. It is not related to either the benzos or barbituates. Its not addictive. He probably started you on the lowest dose, and it is to be increased every 2-3 days. Give it time to work. I've seen it do wonders.
