In brief: Caution

Imipramine + buspirone may interact to increase risk for serotonin syndrome.
Be sure you are closely supervised by prescribing doctor while taking these meds. Imipramine alone is effective for both depression and anxiety. See: http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/serotonin-syndrome/basics/definition/con-20028946 I hope this helps. Best wishes.
