My Paychiatrist changed my Buspar med to Lexapro which I'm not to happy about I was used to the Buspar it didn't help with the Phisical symptoms of anxiety but it did keep my anxiety level in place and that's what I like ms about it I told her to raise my Buspar but she refused and said that buspar isn't doing anything for me I was put on Buspar for over almost two months it helped me a bit with the anxiety but not the physical symptoms I was put on 10mg twice day so I took it in the am then late night before going to sleep... At first it was working good not to many psychical symptoms or anxiety but for the past two weeks I've been having upper abdominal pressure and shortness of breath which the Buspar isn't taking away so I'm wondering has anybody gone through this with Buspar of so pls give me advice as I told her to raise my Buspar to 15mg twice a day and see how it goes I'm afraid of trying the Lexapro and going through new side effects and the Citalopram I started at first gave me panic attacks and didn't work to well for me so I stopped it on my third day of taking it the side effects were. But horrible but she assures me that Lexapro is much better better and she prescribes it to many of her patients and they are doing well .. I've read too many negatives on this med does anyone have anything positive to say on it ... I'm truly afraid of starting this new med as it as already switched from omeprazole for my gerd which I think it's coming from anxiety or my gerd is causing my anxiety so the Doc put me in Pepcid took 20mg of the 40mg he prescribed me last night before bed and thank god cause it gave me all the side effects of that pill I didn't sleep much maybe an hour or two and I'm having a massive headache as I write this blog .. Anyone pls help any ideas I wanna go back to Buspar haven't even tried the new pill yet ... Much Thx
