    You mention that your husband is away on deployment is this because he is in the armed forces.

    Hi Eliaimee, I have been on both of these meds. Buspar does cause the effects as you described, and they can make you feel uncomfortable, frightened and very tired. I would call the doctor, explain how Buspar is affecting you and ask for the Ativan. If he does not want to prescribe Ativan, ask if you can take Klonopin. I am on Klonopin now and it is great with my anxiety. I hope this helps! If you need to chat further, feel free to contact me. Stay calm, rest and enjoy your holidays as best you can. I pray your husband returns very soon.
