Buspar inhibits the reuptake of Dopamine and norepinephrine (i recomend looking these up if you want to know more about them) regulating those neurotransmiters (which by the way are basicly part of the same system along with GABA, ACH, and Serotonin) while Xanax attaches to the receptors of GABA to make this neurotransmiter more effective... basicly xanax slows the whole body and brain activity down within 15 min of ingestation, while buspar slowly works by leveling out the amount of the before mentioned neurotransmiters over atleast 1 month of taking the med. (side effects are important to notice for each med)
