Here's a link on buspar
The book is Beyond Prozac by Michael Norden
1. buspar augnments ad effect of prozac.
2. lessons side effect of prozac
3. lessons sexual sides in 70% of prozac uses
Probably due to partial agonist effect...see wikipedia that blocks certain serotonin receptors that cause anxiety and sexual sides
