Adderall and Buspar

Hi guys!

Just got prescribed a new med combo and kinda want to know what to expect.

I was on Adderall before (40mg a day) and it worked but made my body feel gross. Has anyone ever taken Adderall and Buspar together? Was it helpful? I also have social anxiety and autism so not sure if that will play a role in the effectiveness of this combo.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Adderall and Buspar

I have been on adderall for many years and buspar for about 1.5 years. I think it works ok, but its very subtle and takes awhile for you to notice anything. After a few months I felt better able to "manage" the anxiety or at least I didnt feel as conquered by it. At first I expected miracles like how I felt with a benzo. Then I remembered that buspar is for sort of anxiety management- not to treat panic attacks or acute anxiety. Once I remembered that I was able to notice the small benefits.

Re: Adderall and Buspar

About as safe as adderall and cookies lol. I've been on benzos for over 15 years and every once in awhile they try to get me to try an alternative. I tried Buspar for 3 months, and also read the reviews and clinical studies and tests about it. I was amazed that Buspar only did slightly better then the placebo. The worse results I have seen of any med I ever researched. So I asked my pdoc if he would like me to try the placebo next as it would be cheaper and have about the same effect on me lol.
