Buspar Helps Greatly To Prevent Panic Attacks


I started taking Buspar 3 years ago for panic attacks. For me it works to prevent the panic attacks in the first place mostly. Great for me. I was getting pretty bad ones 3 to 5 times a week and it went down to about 1 every month or so. With xanax it helps to slow down the panic attacks but once it has started it is kind of too late. I now take latuda for bipolar sever depression and schizophrenia and after 3 months i rarely think about suicide any more and am awake and active much more. Also i have not had a panic attack since starting the Latuda.

Awesome, Nickoly! I am so happy that you've found medications that work so well for you.

Have you experienced any of the typical Latuda side effects that the FDA lists, such as drowsiness, dizziness, nausea, stomach pain or diarrhea?

Is anyone else currently on this medication?

No none of those side effects I have had some sleeplessness only sleeping 3 hours at a time or a night though. But unlike in the past my thoughts have been quite stable with so little sleep. I have had 8 hours 3 nights in a row now of sleep much better. Been taking latuda about 3 months on a higher dose 1 month now for the sleep issues. I do not suffer from much side effects though considering the amount of medicine I take. I think drinking 2 gallons of water a day helps flush me out and keep the chemicals from accumulating too much.
