In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.
