No but possible: Although none of my patients on Buspar (buspirone) developed anger or hostility, any psychotropic drug can result in paradoxical or unintended behaviors.

Restlessness: The only paradoxic reaction I have noted with Buspar (buspirone) is increased restlessness and anxiety. I have not seen agitation or aggression. However, there are very rare reports of Buspar (buspirone) activating mania. A person in a manic state could become aggressive.

Buspar/anger: not uncommon. Needs further re-evaluation by your prescribing doctor.
