Anx after buspar (buspirone)?: Always consult your prescribing doc before making any changes to your med regimen. If you tapered Buspar (buspirone) at ur docs instruction (or even if you did it "on ur own") give her a ring and let her know how u've been feeling since u've stopped the med. u & ur doc can work out the best course of action, which may include resuming, changing the dose of a med ur already taking, or several other options :)
