    I started developing anxiety while driving with the symptoms increasing to the point where I couldn't even drive out of my parking lot without shaking uncontrollably. I was (mistakenly) diagnosed with Generalized anxiety and given Busperone 7.5 mg 2x a day. While I can't say that it really did anything about the anxiety, I also had no notable side effects. I have since been given a more ... Show Full Comment

    Being able to take it in small doses through the day helped me from being lethargic and that sleepy feeling. Also being able to take no dose or double(2 doses @7.5mg ea) didn't put me over my maximum dosage per day. I feel this drug really helped me with the anxiety attacks that came out of nowhere. And daily regiment kept most anxiety issues at bay.

    I feel like this medication has helped my anxiety. However it does have a lot of side effects. It makes me very sleepy, i get bad heart burn, and i get numbness in my limbs. For now it's worth it because no other anxiety meds have helped relieve the anxiety.
