Customer Question

I currently have 10mg of buspirone, I don't take it much. But I was wondering if it worked for times when I know my anxiety will be high. I have some social anxiety so taking it before events would be helpful. will this drug work for that?
JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that seems to make the symptoms better or worse?
Customer: years
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: not really. i have a history of anxiety and depression
