> I haven't seen a lot written about Social Anxiety in Psychobabble. (Occasional references.) If you are reading this and have Social Anxiety. Can you tell me which med. has worked best for you?? (I also have OCD - but that's another "thread".) Thanks guys!!

I've taken the whole gamut of tranquilizers for social anxiety. Valium, Xanax, Klonopin, Lorazepam and others I can't even remember. They help a little with anxiety, but I hate the muddled cognitive skills (although I get that from depression, too). Inevitably, I become addicted. I don't like that either. Right now, I'm not on a sedative and still have the ever present battle with social anxiety. For me, it's a trade off, addiction or social anxiety. Neither is fun. Maybe it would be different for you. In the past, I have overdone it with tranquilizers. and the addictions may be partly my own fault. Coincidentally, I think I may also have OCD, although I haven't been diagnosed with it. I just thought I would give you my experiences. I hope that you find something that works for you. I hope you will share it if you do. Best wishes.
