I went in for my annual physical today and discussed my bowel problems with my doc. She suggested BuSpar since I suffer from Panic related D to help get my anxiety under control. I know some of you have taken it. I am curious to know whether it helped, what your side effects were, how long you took it and if you quit taking it - why? I have been taking Xanax but since mine seems to be an extreme case of nerves she thought I could benefit from taking something every day rather than just occasionally.
