I get so anxious during meetings or sitting through church it just started happening recently and my heart will start beating really fast. Has buspar helped anyone with this problem?
I currently take 60mg per day of Busperion (generic for BuSpar). It has worked wonders for my anxiety and panic attacks. Its best to start witha low dose and then your doctor can adjust it as needed. You need to be careful mixing different meds with it. Make sure your doctor knows everything you are taking. That is very important. I hope this helps you. Good luck!
I wanted to address the 'panic attacks' you are experiencing, have you actually seen a doctor or been diagnosed with anxiety or panic disorder? Often panic attacks and anxiety are the body's natural reaction to telling us something has gone wrong that needs to be addressed. It is usually some form of trauma that has happened in our life that creates the panic attacks and anxiety. Medication numbs the symptoms (but are extremely beneficial for those of us who experience 'true' anxiety disorders and panic attacks) but they do not address the root of the problem for those who may be experiencing something else and just assume that they have a disorder. Have you considered going into therapy to see what is causing the panic attacks and anxiety?
I haven't tried that med before but just thought I would mention that if you can be conscious on your breathing when you are in a meeting or church. Take a deep breath now and again when you feel the stress it will relax you. Sometimes we hold our breath without knowing it. You should feel your body relax!
