Doctor's Orders #5

Start on Buspar for anxiety.

I tried Buspar before but didn't take it regularly like I was supposed to. You need to take it three times a day and I kept forgetting my lunch time dose. So, I purchased a three a day pill reminder case and fill it up once a week. Also, I set up Outlook reminders to beep at me.

I'm not so certain the Buspar will help me as I've not had a lot of luck with mental health medications but I'm willing to give it a try. No effect yet but it can take four to six weeks to start helping and it's only been three.

  1. It takes a while for any of them to work and it may take adjustments in dose as well. I wonder if doctors make allowances for the increased blood volume in large people in order to get a concentration of medication that would be effective? I doubt it. I personally take anti-anxiety medication and find it takes the edge off and makes it easier not to emotionally overeat. It takes a while to find the right one and some experimentation.
