Re: FDA's approval of Paxil for social anxiety

That is my hunch, too. If you look in pubmed, you will be able to locate the study, I think I cam across it, and it was a big one, specifically studying paxil and social phobia. That is how the system works. You put the money up for a study, you get your drug approved. While in reality, lots of docs use drugs for "off label" purposes, named this only because no company had the profit motive to fund a big study for using the med for that purpose (such as ritalin as an augmentor to ADs--why bother? It is on the market, comes in generic, is relatively safe, and works for the purpose in question. No one feels the need to fund a study. Only managed care companies give us patients a hassle based on the FDA approval thing).
