> Mitch mentioned he takes Risperdal. I just wanted to let you know that I don't know of any evidence that antipsychotics help in SP, and there is a chance they might make it worse. Of course, everybody's different, but I would put antipsychotics way down at the bottom of the list of things to try.
Except of course Sulpiride & Amisulpride. They're both highly regarded social phobia treatments at Maudsley, England's top psychiatric hospital. Sulpiride is the only med to offer consistent help in this regard for me and I've tried all the conventional options listed.
> Finally, as I've said before, opioids work the best for me -- Nardil is the only thing that's come close. But I don't know whether what I have is regular social phobia.
Interestingly, Methadone seems to make more sociable, though it's early days (did you get my email?).
>I especially urge you to get an adequate dose of Klonopin, or add something to it that gives you adequate relief -- any of these drugs is *much* healthier than alcohol!
..but *much* less fun %^)
