Hello primetimegrape. Interesting question. I've taken xanax, for years literally and am currently on miratazapine (Remeron) which I as yourself take at night. I use it more as a sleeping aid, in as much as I'm an insomniac. I've been on zoloft, which is the sister drug of prozac. One of the main differences between the two is the half life of the drugs. Prozac will keep its drug properties much longer than zoloft, where your body will loose its properties within a few days rather than say a few weeks. I was on Buspar, but only for a short period of time, not more than three months. My dose I believe was 40mg. I understand the xanax, it works quickly, within an hour so to speak and you get that fast relief. As you know, that Buspar takes forever to work, and its meant to work long term. Its a long lasting medication and our body retains the halflife for a long time. So, yes, I will have to say it certainly should help your anxiety levels. I apologize, I tend to go on a bit, I literally type things out as soon as it enters my mind. Hopefully some of the other members will see your question and give you their thoughts, and opinions. Wishing you the best.
