Buspirone is an anxiolytic agent and serotonin receptor agonist indicated to treat anxiety disorders or the short-term relief of symptoms of anxiety. Buspirone hydrochloride is an anxiolytic agent with a high affinity for 5-HT1A serotonin receptors, moderate affinity for dopamine type 2 (DA2) receptors, and no significant affinity for benzodiazepine receptors. It has no effect on GABA binding. The mechanism of action of buspirone is not fully elucidated. Buspirone acts as an agonist for the 5-HT1A receptors, and both an antagonist and agonist for DA2 receptors. The net result is that serotonergic activity is suppressed while noradrenergic and dopaminergic cell firing is enhanced.
