Tried 10mg dose of Buspar (buspirone) at 5-6pm instead of 8 cause I thought it made insomnia worse. Get whooshes/head rushes after an hour. Not after am dose tho.
Half dose: I would try taking half a pill. Buspar (buspirone) one is not a coated/long acting pill so should be fine. If scored you should be able to break in half. If not get a pill cutter.
