7.5 mg 2 x a day. I got a bad headache last night, but I haven't noticed it helping yet. I'm a 31 y/o healthy female. This horrible anxiety is new to me. GAD is docs dx. I've seen so many people say it started helping right away! This has already affected my life so much! I mean panic/anxiety attack on the way to the store 15 mins from home! Ugg I want my life back!
I don't how sensitive you are to medicines but I've taken 15, 30, 45, and even 60mg of buspirone a day to help with GAD. Not sure if they've caused me a headache though. The only relief I found was in 1mg clonazepam 3 times daily. For the first week they make you very sedated but you build a tolerance and start to get your life back. I suffer from moderate to severe anxiety so if you're having an occasional panic attack maybe try alprazolam (xanax) at 0.25 or 0.5mg dosage for short term anxiety as it has a shorter half-life than clonazepam, meaning it doesn't sedate you as long. Good luck with managing your anxiety, hope my answer helped.
