Characteristics of substance Buspirone

Anxiolytic non-benzodiazepine structure. Buspirone hydrochloride is a white crystalline powder. Very soluble in water. Molecular weight 422.0.


The pharmacological action is anxiolytic.

Has a high affinity for pre-agonist and postsynaptic (partial agonist) serotonin receptors of the 5-HT1A subtype. Reduces the synthesis and release of serotonin, the activity of serotonergic neurons, incl. In the dorsal nucleus of the suture. Selectively blocks (antagonist) pre- and postsynaptic D2-dopamine receptors (has moderate affinity) and increases the rate of excitation of dopamine neurons of the midbrain. Some data indicate the presence of influence on other neurotransmitter systems. Has no affinity for benzodiazepine receptors, does not affect the binding of GABA.

The effect develops gradually, manifests itself after 7-14 days and reaches a maximum after 4 weeks. Does not have a negative effect on psychomotor functions, does not cause tolerance, drug dependence and withdrawal symptoms. Does not potentiate the effect of alcohol. Studies have shown the efficacy of buspirone in autism, obsessive-compulsive disorders, premenstrual syndrome, sexual dysfunction, and the easing of symptoms upon cessation of smoking.

With long-term administration of rats (for 2 years) at doses 133 times greater than MPD, or mice (for 1.5 years) at doses 167 times greater than MPDH, there was no carcinogenic effect. Does not have mutagenic properties. In rats and rabbits, when doses 30 times higher than the MPD were used, no effects on fertility and adverse effects on the fetus were observed. Buspirone and its metabolites penetrate the breast milk of rats.

After oral administration, it is quickly and completely absorbed from the digestive tract and subjected to extensive presystemic metabolism. At the "first pass" through the liver it is hydroxylated and dealkylated (bioavailability - 4%). N-dealkylated metabolite - 1-pyrimidinylpiperazine is pharmacologically active (anxiolytic activity is 1/4 of that of buspirone). After taking a dose of 20 mg Cmax is achieved after 40-90 minutes and is 1-6 ng / ml. Binding to plasma proteins - 95%. Simultaneous food intake reduces the rate of absorption, but increases the amount of unchanged drug that has reached the systemic blood flow (AUC and Cmax buspirone increases by 84 and 116%, respectively) due to inhibition of the systemic clearance). It is excreted by the kidneys (29-63%) in the form of metabolites and unchanged (1%), and gastrointestinal tract (18-38%). T1 / 2 buspirone - 2-3 h, T1 / 2 active metabolite - 4.8 h.

Routes of administration


Precautions for the substance Buspirone

Use with caution simultaneously with neuroleptics, antidepressants, cardiac glycosides, antihypertensive and antidiabetic agents, oral contraceptives.

During the treatment should be excluded from drinking alcohol. At the beginning of treatment with caution to apply during work drivers of vehicles and people whose profession is associated with increased concentration of attention.

Special instructions
