  • buspar made me sleepless and anxious, but that may just have been my reaction. I hope that you get sleep soon. Sleep during the day if you can.

  • I have xanax for anxiety. Mostly I have it under control without needing the meds during the day. But it does interfere with my sleeping, so I had always taken one around 9pm. NOW I take valerian root.....natural herb, and I drift off nicely.

  • There is a fantastic book called No More Panic by Claire Weeks; you should be able to pick it up at your local library.
