    I have been taking BuSpar for about 2 months now. At first I was taking 15mg now I'm taking 30 mg a day. It really doesn't seem to be working. My anxiety has gotten much worse. I've been very emotional, and I have brain fog. Not sure if it is side affects or just my anxiety getting worse.

I know these symptoms are rare but they do happen.I have been to several Drs. only for them to run tests on my heart, give me blood pressure meds.etc. to no avail.

    This didn't help much as far as my anxiety went. When I took my dose in the morning it would make me drowsy , so then the night dose would atleast help me go to sleep. Cannot even be compared to any of the benzos I have tried.
