why is buspar not an 'antipsychotic'?

Posted by katekite on May 28, 2002, at 22:01:41

Buspar has an agonist effect at 5HT1a receptors and an antagonist effect at DA2 receptors.

This doesn't seem real different from some of the newer atypical antipsychotics. Is it just that it didn't work for psychosis and they thought, hey, we'll label this for anxiety because we can label anything for anxiety.... or is there a reason?

any thoughts?
