how long does Buspar stay in body?

I went off Buspar on Sunday.  So, it's been 3 days.  How long before Buspar is totally out of my system?  I was only on it for 4 1/2 days.

GREAT!!!  Why would I still have some of the side effects?  Like the bad taste and smell??

LOL!  Buspar has a half life of 3 hours?  Looks like the only real use this drug has is to make it's manufacturer lots of money.

Yah Buspar is a JOOOOOKKEEEE!!!

I mean, sure it might work for some, but for those with severe anxiety/panic attacks, Buspar is not the answer.

I'm glad you posted this question!!  My last Buspar was this past Saturday.  I was on it for a month, and it did nothing for me.
I have a question. I have been on klonipin for well over a year and I moved to a different state and found a new Dr. He told me that he would not fill my klonipin but switched to buspar.experienceing 90% of the listed side effects. Not doing well at all. Any suggestions.

Buspar as well as any medication has an effect on a persons chemical makeup. Each person is different with their chemical build and thus medications act according to this. I have been on Buspar for some time and must say that it has helped a tremendous amount. I hope that you find something that works for you. Good luck all
