Here's a link on buspar

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buspirone

The book is Beyond Prozac by Michael Norden

He claims

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
