I take 1 escitalopram a day and I’m supposed to take up to 3 buspirone a day?
I have been given escitalopram 20 and buspirone 5mg,. Is it safe to take both?

I took buspirone with escitalopram for many years and now take it with another antidepressant and have never had any problem with it.
That being said, there is a risk of a very rare condition called serotonin syndrome and you should be aware of any potential symptoms... Tyrese has given you the link above.
It's a risk ~vs~ benefit situation and your doctor has determined that the benefits for you outweigh the risk. If you have questions or concerns you should talk with your doctor and ask for her professional advice.
If your doctor prescribe this medication, you should contact his/her office and let him/her tell you what to do.
