Hi. My son has had social phobia since he was in grade school. It was really painful to see him miss out on so much. He had a few friends that really liked him but he couldn't hold up his end so they just drifted on. He finally got some help in his senior year in high school and the doctor put him on Paxil. It's been approved by the FDA for SP and it helped him alot. He went on his senior trip to Mexico and finally connected with kids he'd been in school with all those years. He's living in his own apt at school and that's helped,too. He started a trend and would go off his medicine and hole himself up in his dorm room. He saw a doctor at school and got on the meds again and it gave him that boost he needed to get on with his life. He also has depression, but I think the medicine and life changes, both helped him. I don't think he's on anything now but seems to be doing better than he used to without meds. I have it also, depending on the situation. I've learned that some of mine was being with people who weren't good for me and I felt bad about myself with. I'm making those changes with the help of Celexa and Klonopin. I've read several times on this board that Klonopin has helped with sp and it helps me. Good luck. Don't give up. Teri
