Buspirone is an anxiolytic drug. It generally is considered to have a significantly lower addiction potential compared to other drugs commonly prescribed for anxiety, especially benzodiazepine medications.
Furthermore, it is non-sedating. It is thought to act by interfering with the function of the neurotransmitter serotonin in the brain, particularly by serving as a 5-HT1A receptor partial agonist.
