I have been taking Buspar since 1998 and no Doctor has ever indicated there is any problem with taking it for that long. I have been feeling quite ill for the last year or so. I thought the severe fatigue and brain fog was from my Hepatitis C but my recent viral load was not high (171,000) My white blood count is consistently below normal and my alpha beta protein high, it was 12 in May, test this month was 10.. I want to get off Buspar and use alternative, I know I have taken it too long though Doctors don't seem to care... - I am so concerend about what drugs are doing to me. I can not take antidepressants. I have a back condition that requires surgery so I take Motrin every day and Percocet on an average of 3 times a week - 5mg. I also take 1 .25mg Xanex in the evening. I was recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, and was given samples of Lyrica but I will not take it. I am considering Sam E. I am not sure what to do. I would like your opinion about the length of time I've been on Buspar, what the adverse effects could be and how to get off it. Thank you.
