    Had a good visit with doctor today. He spoke well of BuSpar as an "as needed" treatment for those long days when the Metadate is worn off and Bug just can't control himself.

    He feels that we can control the dose and frequency.

    Any thoughts? Anyone using BuSpar this way?

    by the way: We feel blessed that the initial prescription for Metadate was just the ticket for Bug's ADHD. Everyone has seen HUGE improvements in his behavior during the day.

    BuSpar is generally prescribed for anxiety. It can be used regularly or as a PRN medication.

    My son tried it about 3 years ago with no other medications on board. It made him dizzy so we discontinued it.

    I hope it helps your difficult child.
