How long does it take, on average, to start feeling the therapeutic effects of Buspar (buspirone)? my doc started me on 5mg three times a day

Buspirone. Buspirone works by modulating serotonin through the 1A receptor. There are also some effects on dopamine receptors. It is approved for generalized anxiety disorder. Studies have shown it can be an effective addition to antidepressant medications. It generally takes 2-4 weeks to see an effect and sometimes longer for full effect.
