>Hi DJ: Just me (Bones) again. I didn't mention that Manerix improved my mood greatly. I wasn't on it for too long, and was only on a very small dose, so I don't know if I'm the best "guinea pig". I never think that depression is one of my symptoms. Particularly after reading how afflicted some are. My heart goes out to them. I have to say that Manerix improved my mood better than the SSRI's. I remember sitting on my front porch - feeling the wind in my face, watching it blow through the trees and thinking - yes, this is what it's like to feel truly happy. The down side of the medication for me was that it made me edgy - my brain worked overtime - thinking, thinking - not good for someone with OCD. I've always had trouble with motivation - the Manerix seemed to help with my initiative. Didn't sleep well with it either - although this seems to be prevalent with a lot of the SSRI's too. Depending on the person. Manerix I believe is only approved for use in Canada, not the U.S. that's perhaps why not too much is written in psychobabble. Best of luck. Have you any other med tips you can give me? Anything else that worked on your social anxiety but you had to give up because of side effects?? (Celexa is the next drug of choice suggested to me by my Dr.) Just tried Paxil - I found it had little effect on my Social Anxiety. Prozac was good for Social Anxiety - made me very lethargic - unmotivated - I had trouble getting out of bed in the morning - would sleep at any opportunity. Enough said!! I'm writing a book!!

Anyone out there had experience with Manerix & if so how was it for you???? Did it help with depression???
> I've only briefly tried Celexa for a few days before backing off because of hot flushes, perspiration and racing heart in a.m. as well as dull sense of anomie, alienation, fatigue, yawning, etc. Still uncertain which is worse the symptoms of depression & social anxiety or the symptoms from the meds. -- hard to seperate at times effect and cause and whether the ADs exaserbate the situation. Sucks eithe way!!!
> > Hi Douglas: I too suffer from Social Anxiety (OCD too). I was recently on a drug called Manerix which I found was quite effective with my Social Anxiety. I felt very "sharp" mentally, (something I dislike about the SSRI's which make me apathetic and mentally foggy). It stopped my tremors. (However I did feel a little "edgy".) I was on quite a small dose, but had to come off of it as it exacerbated my OCD... (It's part of the MAOI family - a newer drug - no (or little) dietary restrictions.) ...(Also no sexual side effect with the Manerix.)

> > > I have been suffering from mild social phobia for the last 20 years...This is my third day of 10 mgs of Celexa. I amm supposed to gradually increase the dosage. I was wondering if anyone out there has any experience with Celexa or any other ssri as part of a treatment plan for social phobia. Also, is anyone taking Celexa without experiencing similar side effects ?
