Can busparone help depression?

Buspirone can help: The medication is indeed classified as an antidepressant and is one of the most common prescribed in the country. Many neurologists have the same concern about it as I do which is that it can lower seizure threshold in susceptible individuals and should be used cautiously in patients with family history of epilepsy. Good luck.
