    Hi there, I've been on buspirone (buspar), never had any side effects.

    my dose was 35mg a day taken over three doses per day.

    Buspirone takes someĀ time to work, usually 3-4 weeks and works well in conjunction with anti depressants.

    Can be a bit hit or miss but worth trying, dose can go to 45mg Max.
