No: Buspar (buspirone) does not cause "drug tolerance" and therefore there is no withdrawal if you skip a dose. Of course, it's still better not to skip doses if you want it to work as well as it can.

Buspar (buspirone): Depending on dose, how long you've been on it, and how many times a day it is prescribed, unlikely.
