Hey Jumpy:
Tell me about it. It seems like the last 15 years have been lives in fear. Always wasting time, beacuse my Pdoc always wants to give each med a 'sufficient trial,' and he insists that we need to push the lamictal, because he just loves the drug. He thinks if my overall mood is better from the lamictal, so will my social anxiety. But I told him that even when I'm feeling fine, and I so much as hear about a future social occasion, I get that pit in my stomach and immediately start freaking out even thinking about it. So it could hit me even when I'm in a 'good' mood. And then it jus results in deterioration of relationships and of my own daily functioning-I pass up jobs offered to me, I make promises to go places with my fiancee and break them at the last minute, etc.
I agree I shouldn't waste time, and I know Nardil is the best. But what about the hypertensice crisis risk, and the food and medication interactions? I'd be afraid of mistakenly eating something in a restaurant with tyramine in it! It seems crazy! Is it really worth it? Do the pros outweigh the cons? Is it that much better than SSRI's at treating social anxiety?
thanks,
Peter
