Yes., in many. That combination can be very useful for generalized anxiety disorder. It may take 1-2 months for full effect. After that, dose can be adjusted if needed. It will help even more if it is combined with therapy. Read more...

Besides helping with lack of orgasm what are other benefits of adding Buspar (buspirone) to my Lexapro 10 for my severe depression/anxiety/phobias? Pls elaborate

Perhaps anxiety. Buspar (buspirone) came out in the 1980's and was suppose to be the "replacement" for benzodiazepines! it was very disappointing to say the least. In my experience it helped perhaps 1/3 of the time. As far as counteracting sexual se's of ssri's, about the same results. A greater concern is developing a serotonergic syndrome albeit only at high doses of both. Caution other meds working via serotonin migraine. Read more...
