I've been diagnosed (for what its worth) with both general and social anxiety and currently take Gabapentin 1200 mg, Propanolol 40 mg, and Buspar 20 mg, per day. I also take Klonopin .5 or 1 mg as needed but I avoid taking it as much as I possibly can - maybe 3 to 4 times a week, often to get to sleep. The Buspar is new - I've been on it for two weeks and I find that I am having more intrusive thoughts (mostly about the past and my divorce), my mood is not quite as good as before, my sleep is not as good and I am having more conflict with other people because I'm more inclined to just say what I feel. I also do feel less anxious overall though. I have read Buspar takes about 4 to 6 weeks to really work so I want to give it a try but I wonder if anyone else has experienced the sort of energized jumpy feeling it seems to produce.
Hello Vanmanster. Not much to add, you know why you're feeling as you are, the drugs and how they work. I'd say your combination is a sound, good one. Nothing to add because you answered your own concerns well. As you said the Buspar is the newcomer, and it will be a bit longer before it works to its full theraputic ability. Best wishes, good health and hope all goes well,pledge
