There was a study in JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association), 280:708-713 (I think that was around August or Sept. of 98) indicating that Paxil (paroxetine) was effective against social phobia. Patients in the Paxil study received up to 50 mg daily with significant improvements on scales such as Clinical Global IMprovement (CGI). Other SSRIs (including Luvox) tend to be used interchangeably for this condition. Terry

> Does anyone know of new medications being used to treat Social Phobia. Also can soneone recommend a Doctor in the Northern Va. and D.C. area who specializes in this kind of treatment?
