I have been on Buspar 5 mg twice daily for almost 2 weeks and it has helped but I'm still having moments of anxiety and my doc has said I can increase to 7.5 mg twice a day but I'm apprehensive that is could make the anxiety worse. I welcome any feedback. Thanks!

I took Plan B one step 5 and ago and for the last 4 days I've felt terrible emotionally. I'm grateful that I don't have any physical symptoms but at the same time I'm really upset and want his to be over soon. I don't want to tell my friends I took the medication so I feel pretty alone.
