I am a single parent and that means I canít afford to be anxious all the time. I took BuSpar for a bout a year and then discontinued it. I was not very happy with the drug. It did help me get over the anxiety to an extent. But it made me feel tired, groggy and cranky all the time. I had to discontinue the drug because, in the process of trying to suppress my anxiety, I cannot deal with other problems like grogginess, fatigue etc.
