I'm currently taking Buspar, and it really does take a little time to help. Why not take a nice bath? Read a book? Or go for a nice walk in your neighboorhood? I know it is difficult dealing with IBS/Anxiety/Depression. I've found the above helps, not to mention a good cup of a strong Green Tea brew helps with my depression (though this is not a recommendation, just my own).Does this help? I'm currently thinking of trying to get Remeron in the near future to help out and may go off Buspar. But just do whatever you enjoy doing to take your mind off things and help the mind "relax". Some people help their minds "relax" by using this BB as well .
