>so do u find that the klonopin and xanax help with the social anxiety? What type of ocd do u have? I have body dysmorphic disorder as ocd, and am hoping when i get a hold of some tramadol that it will alleviate that
Nothing compares to Klonopin and Xanax for social anxiety, as many people here I know will agree with me on (especially re: Klonopin). Though Klonopin is usually the medication of choice, I think Xanax is at least as effective, and for me, more effective. Perhaps with the advent of the extended-release version it will be prescribed more often... though many doctors are still afraid of the stigma attached to the name "Xanax".
I haven't been officially dx'd with OCD, and I believe what I have fits more with obsessive-compulsive personality disorder than OCD. I had problems with counting words in sentences, and letters in words, I felt everything had to be "even" or "symmetrical", plus a few other little idiosynchracies that were just annoying.
