Drug Names(s): buspirone

Description: Buspar is buspirone, a psychotropic drug with anxiolytic properties. While its precise mechanism of action is unclear, it has a high affinity for serotonin (5-HT1A) receptors (where it is a partial agonist) and moderate affinity for brain D2-dopamine receptors. Some studies suggest that buspirone may have indirect effects on other neurotransmitter systems.
