Are you seeing a psychiatrist or a regular doc? I'm neither a pharmacist or a psychopharmacologist, but Buspar is supposedly a relaxant although it has never been shown to work well in clinical trials. Most often these days, and this has been a drug that for many many years has been in search of a use that it proves to work for, it is used as an adjunct to an antidepressant when anxiety persists. One thing you can do is Google whether Buspar is used for this purpose and see what you find, because if you're seeing a regular doc and not a psychiatrist, you'll probably end up knowing more about the drug than your doctor in a half hour or so of research. The only drug I've ever heard of being used for this purpose is Wellbutrin, but I don't know if you'd add that to an snri such as Effexor rather than an ssri because Effexor is already a stimulating drug as it targets norepinephrine receptors and Wellbutrin is also a very stimulating antidepressant, but it's something to enquire about.
Not really helpful. I added it but it only helped a little. You need to use Cyproheptadine 2-3 hours before sex. You may even need Cialis or Viagra if your erections are weakened due to Effexor as mine were.
I take 150mg Effexor XR and 22.5mg Buspar. I use 8mg Cyproheptadine before sex. Cypro makes you tired so you might want some coffee before you engage. It blocks ssri and ssni action so don't use it daily.
