Buspirone Properties


Molecule Structure Image



Buspirone is an anxiolytic psychoactive drug of the azapirone chemical class. It is primarily used to treat generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). Buspirone was first identified by a team at Mead Johnson in 1972. Buspirone is used to treat symptoms of anxiety, such as fear, tension, irritability, dizziness, pounding heartbeat, and other physical symptoms. Buspirone is not an anti-psychotic medication and should not be used in place of medication prescribed by your doctor for mental illness. Buspirone is thought to work by decreasing the amount and actions of a chemical known as serotonin in certain parts of the brain.
