My doctor just started me on buspar 15mg a day for anxiety in addition to my antidepressant effexor. The effexor wasn't cutting it by itself. does anyone have any experience with Buspar? any feedback is welcome.

Yes buspar was a big zero for me and after 4 weeks I felt worse on it - we all all different though

I took effexor and buspar together worst time of my life!! I'm 33 year old female was rushed to the ER due to serotonin syndrome never will I take effexor again. I initially was taking 15 mg buspar and was put on effexor for depression I felt like a zombie didn't eat had no energy I had needle feelings all over my chest couldn't breathe dizzy hot flashes . Some people are fine with this combination but everyone is different
