Could taking certain medication (albuterol, flovent, buspar) effect syphilis serology test results?

Highly unlikely: The initial tests for syphilis are screening tests which are quite sensitive but may be non-specific. If these are negative it is not going to be from medications you are taking. If positive they are almost always followed up with more specific testing to be sure that they were not biologically false-positive results.
