For Panic Disorder: “Ok so BuSpar was is a no go for me. It gave me brain zaps and feels like an electrical surge and did nothing for panic attacks. Clonazapam does a better job. I did not like this and within 3 weeks asked my doctor to switch to something else.”
For Anxiety: “No difference, took for 4 months up to six 10 mg tablets a day. It felt like a placebo $ maker Instead 0.5 Xanax works perfect. But most likely the Doctor won’t prescribed it for you”
