Possible, but...: Buspar (buspirone) oral and Remeron could lead to serotonin syndrome, is a potentially life-threatening situation. Rec.: discussed risk/reward ratio with your psychiatrist or other healthcare provider.

Yes.: Buspar (buspirone) is a non- benzodiazepine anti-anxiety medication while Remeron is an atypical antidepressant which is often used to improve appetite and improve the quality of sleep. They can be taken together.
