Re: why is buspar not an 'antipsychotic'? omega man

That's a really good question.. chemically what is anxiety?

I remember reading somewhere that the best way to produce a panic attack in people with a tendency to panic was a dose of an anti-GABA med. Lots of other things also made them panic, but that produced the worst feeling. Other things that made them panic included just run of the mill caffeine in higher doses.

I guess my original question about whether buspar is anti-psychotic was more a question over how the class of anti-psychotics is actually defined? Like how many people with hallucinations have to be helped before something is an anti-psychotic? Or is it more dependent on the chemical structure and known relatedness to other prototype drugs? Is there an accepted definition?
