In my experience, klonopin has been great for social anxiety. I was really worried about the dependency issue since I tend to have problems with addiction (nicotine, caffeine). My pdoc swore up and down that if there was a legimate need for the drug I would NOT become addicted. And I haven't. I've gone through spells when I would take it daily, but mostly it's just as-needed, professional conferences at the top of the list.

My pdoc assured me there was no danger of addiction if used properly. And, klonopin has a longer effect and more mellow onset and exit, unlike Xanax and Valium.

Finally, Remeron seems an odd choice... another SSRI would have probably been better for social anxiety.

You sure your pdoc is competent? Didn't do her residency at some podunk school? I've never heard of a pdoc who is afraid of benzos....
