... the day time because of how long it stays in the body? I mean the first 8 hours of taking Buspar is basically not useful because of sleep, right?
I am taking Buspar before bedtime because it makes me drowsy. Is it more beneficial to take it in?

I agree with Janie.. and I would also like to say... Buspar does not make me sleepy. When I take it close to bedtime, it keeps me awake. It also has a tendency to make some people anxious about an hour after taking each dose.
Buspar has a short half life of about 3 hours, that is why it is usually prescribed 2-3 times a day. If your anxiety is during the day and you take it at night it may not help you. It can take a few weeks for the Buspar to build up in your system.
This may be something to speak to your doctor about.
Hope you figure it out soon.
