Gonna have to be patient on this one. You are still on a low dose of the BuSpar. May take a couple of increases before you notice a difference in your level of anxiety. The tiredness is a common side effect which may go away with continued use. If the crying and and get up and go don't get better in the next week, please let the doctor know. You may need to be on an antidepressant rather than the BuSpar. Many antidepressants also help with anxiety. Hang in there, there are sloutions.
