From the National Aliance on Mental Illness:
"How Long Does It Take For Buspirone To Work?
It may take 3 to 4 weeks of taking buspirone every day before you start to feel better."
I think for some people it may take a little longer than that but I began feeling improvements in the first couple of weeks.
I've been on buspirone now for over four years and it's worked exceptionally well for me. I can't take the good antidepressants and I refused benzodiazepines so buspirone has been a game changer!
Best regards and I hope you're feeling better quickly.
Yes, it is a drug that takes 4-6 weeks to reach a therapeutic level. When I was first prescribed Buspirone several years ago, the doctor gave me a low dose Xanax (.25mg) to take daily for the first few weeks for breakthrough anxiety. I’ve been taking a 45mg of Buspirone and it works very well for me. Good luck and hang in there!
