  1. Hey, So about 5pm every day of late, my mood just turns black. I can't buy a neutral (forget positive) cognition or emotion, I start to feel and think very negatively no matter what I do. Of course, I'm feeling and thinking badly beforehand, but it just sinks to another level, or depth if you will. So I'm wondering if it's a med (or meds) that I'm taking that's losing effect around 5pm. I take the following meds - yes, it's a crazy-looking brew I know, but it allows me to function somewhat - at 6am (in milligrams): 200 Provigil, 2.5 Abilify, 40 Fetzima, 30
  2. Hello all, I'm looking for some med experience/anecdotes! I am bipolar and also have anxiety, ADHD, and PTSD. Currently I'm taking Lamictal (400mg/day), Geodon (80mg/day), and Adderall (25mg/day). I'm looking to change it up because I am seriously struggling with the side effects. Since starting Geodon I am tired all the time (it doesn't help that I'm in the midst of a depressive episode) and I've gained 20+ pounds in two months. I think it's helping with the manic side (or maybe that's just because of the depressive episode I'm in?) but I can't deal with these side effects. The Adderall
  3. I just started Busar yesterday (2.5 mg twice a day) and am experiencing a terrible headache accompanied by blurred vision, dizziness, and thinking difficulties. It basically feels like the front of my brain is in a headachy fog. I wanted to know 1) Has any one else experienced this with Buspar and how long did it take to go away? 2) How do you continue taking medication when it feels like you're poisoning your body? - Is it worth it? Does it go away?
  4. Hello, all. I'm new to this site. I've been working with a pdoc for the past 3 to 4 years and, more recently, a therapist, due to what I personally classify as treatment resistant MDD. I'm in my mid-forties. Throughout this time, my pdoc has tried multiple "cocktail" combinations of medications. Some combinations work for a while, but it's difficult to become excited when I'm in a good period because I know the bottom can, and likely will, drop out from under my feet again. I'm curious whether anyone has had any success with a similar pharmaceutical lineup like mine. I'm also hoping someone mi
  5. I was diagnosed bipolar about 7 years ago around the same time as my first suicide attempt. Long story short - I rejected the diagnosis and eventually went off all meds because I thought my issues stemmed from the stress of nursing school. School over - no meds needed. About 3 years later, started seeing a new psychiatrist and taking antidepressants. I actually felt like I had my life back... Then, at some point recently, my son died. I had an affair. My husband and I had another child. And then affair was discovered by my husband. The intense guilt and depression led me to try to
  6. What are people's experience with Buspar for Anxiety? I cannot take SSRI's and this is the option I have left potentially. Does it cause excessive fatigue? Does it work for anyone? Klonopin is the one med that seems to work on my GAD, Social Phobia and general Panic Disorder.....Is this a good option to switch to?
  7. Hi, names Hibiki. Ive been struggling for 7+ years with Trichotillomania, Depression, ADD, Anxiety (agoraphobia , panic disorder, disassociation, etc), OCD (obsessive thoughts). im currently on so many meds due to my age (17) (no narcotics due to me being underage.) and my insurance being the shittiest ever. Im currently taking regularly: •Zoloft •Buspar •Effexor •Seroquel ive ran out of all options for medications so they threw me on effexor and although my anxiety has been absolutely crucial this past year and a half (3 attacks lasting 1 month +) ive noticed a stra

  9. Hi everyone, I think I'm in the right place to ask this question. So, here goes. I recently started taking BuSpar 10mg twice daily. By "recently" I actually mean today was the first dose EVER. My question is this: What times during the day are best to take each dose? One in the morning and night? Or should I not take it before going to sleep? I should add that my physician did not specify this information to me. Thank you in advance for the advice.
  10. So have heard good things about pregablin for gabapentin for social anxiety I have also heard buspar is useful. I don't like to go the antispychotic route but I have heard some new meds are helpful as an add-on to an antidepressant. Like rexulti. This is just an idea as I don't want to pop a benzo everytime things get a little rough and I am just looking for an alternative where I can very little to no benzos. What are your experiences.
  11. Apparently Buspar no longer comes in brand name, which generic(s) is best for trying out to see if the medication is useful/worth taking? I'm in the USA; any help is much appreciated! These appear to be the current manufacturers: Ethex Par Zydus Major Pharmaceuticals Inc. Strides Arcolab Limited Accord Healthcare Inc. Heritage Pharmaceuticals Inc. Watson Teva Mylan
  12. Was finally doing well on Brintellix for about 2mths then had random panic attack out of no where. Anxiety/depression never left afterwards. Doctor is considering that I have bipolar but is not yet ready to give that DX and wants to treat the recent anxiety relapse as just that Anxiety. So she has recommended Buspar. Anyone take this combo? Also looking for just side effects of Buspar. I have read that it can cause rage... That scares me. Almost to the point of not wanting to try it since I am home for nearly 50 hours a week with my 2 little ones ages 2-4. If I did anything to hurt them....
  13. I'd love to hear from folks who are currently on or who once were on buspar. Do these side effects fade? I've been on venlafaxine 375 mg for about 12 years, but it's not working for me like it should anymore. (I'm an ultra-rapid metabolizer, in case you were wondering why my dose is so high.) My psychopharmacologist has been using an augmentation strategy, and the latest add-on is buspar. I started buspar at 15 mgs about 3 weeks ago. I bumped up to 30 mgs about two weeks ago. (I take 10 mgs every 8 hours.) No other meds, other than the occasional 0.5 mg lorazepam. The buspar is definite
  14. I've been on Brintellix since October. We did a trial of 30mg of brintellix this last month. Started Buspar in March and she also increased the dosage of that to 20mg 2x day this past month. I have seen slight improvement but doctor doesn't seem to think it was enough. SOOO she wanted to drop me back down to 20mg of brintellix and start Lamictal starting at 25mg. my current DX is Depression and Anxiety. Though she has said she was monitoring me for signs of possible slight bipolar tendencies. She didn't mention anything today about the bipolar... Just said she thinks the lamictal might be a
  15. From what I read it's not very helpful for most people. Did anyone try it alone or together with a SSRI?
  16. Hi, Has anyone taken buspar (generic) for social phobia and social anxiety? I've only been taking it for 1.5 weeks. I take 5 mg, three times/day (the lowest dose). Some of the side effects are bothersome, but I don't respond well to a lot of psychiatric meds, so that's nothing new for me. Do the side effects pass after a month or so? The side effects can be brutal at times. I was told by my doc I can go on a lower dose or go off it, but I want to give it the full 1-2 month trial at a therapeutic dose. Thank You, Shana
  17. Sorry this ended up kindof long, and ended up kindof more like a ramble... Not quite sure what Im trying to get across and how to word it, and to be honest not sure what exactly Im looking for with this. Just your thoughts on a possible Bipolar Dx i suppose. I'll start with some back history. When I was around 11 my mother started taking me to dr's and would dr shop to find one to give me meds for whatever she seemed to think was wrong. I wasnt really a bad kid(2 experiments with alcohol and a few bong hits). Just opinionated and passionate with my beliefs which didnt mix well with my father
  18. Hi thanks for reading I have struggled with anxiety and depression for years. I am now 27 (today is my birthday lol) I have been in IP once before for an anxiety attack that began a major depressive episode (lasted about a month). I was put on Pristiq 50mg at that time and it worked well for a few years, but the withdrawal symptoms if I took a dose late were getting out of control, so I was weaned off of it. Currently I take zoloft 100mg daily and Ativan .5 twice as needed daily. I take Provigil twice daily for fatigue (nap at least twice per day without it) for a total of 300mg.
  19. The last week or so, I've been sleeping 16+ hours a day and am extremely lethargic and weak when I am awake. I've also noticed that drinking alcohol just makes me feel completely crappy and tired physically but appears to have no intoxicating effect. My morning coffee also does zero for me now. Don't worry - I'm not planning on quitting my meds anytime soon because of any of these things, in fact the alcohol effect might be helpful, but I've taken all of these meds in combinations or in different dosages before and don't remember the alcohol/caffeine thing, so I'm very curious as to what it ma
  20. After getting off xanax several months ago, my panic episodes seem to have subsided. Now I feel like I live with a constant elevated state of anxiety and worry but I want to avoid benzos at all costs (I started to get really dependent on xanax and stopped that before it got out of hand). I am also taking Wellbutrin, Adderall and Prozac, the anxiety is considerably lower when my adderall is in effect but I would like something not as habit forming to add for my around the clock edginess and anxiety. Is this a med I could ask for by name? I've read it's not scheduled but I don't want to come
  21. Forgive me , my thoughts are pretty fragmented and rushed right now as I haven't slept much the past two weeks. It began a week or so after beginning Buspar: when I had to go to work the next morning, I couldn't sleep all night. But there was no anxiety present, just tons and tons of racing thoughts: quick, fluid, darting. They consumed me for over fourteen hours. Obviously, I didnt sleep. I thought it would llet up, but it hasn't. The quality of these racing thoughts are strange, there is no anxiety. I'm at the end of my rope and dying to get out of my head. I'm irritable as all hell. I t
