Even though its precribed all over the world, including US and Aus Buspar is not available in the UK

Posted , 2 users are following.

How can an objective science vary so much from country to country - after reading up on buspar I thought it would be the perfect solution for me - SSRI'S dont help my anxiety and it looks like I may have to stop taking diazepam soon (which works well for me no negative effects)

Could a Dr please explain this?

My Gp could not prescribe buspar to me as it is not available in the UK? Why?

Its very cheap...

    Hello, this site has no GP's, it's for non medical people suffering mental illness to disscuss their experiences and problems, and for supporting each other. You need to talk with a GP or pharmacy who could give you the answer your seeking.

    I think they sometimes have Q&A sessions on here with doctors, maybe contact the site admin to ask when the next one will be..

    There are a few retired gp's on here but they are likely to point you at your own GP. Also you could post to Buspar  forum ( if there is one )
