I've come to the conclusion that my depression which I believe to be Bipolar II is the main problem behind my Social Phobia. I always do well when I first take an antidepressant but then it stops working. Some times it works too well, for instance, Effexor will make me manic. When I'm on that stuff I can talk to anyone but I do crazy reckless stuff on it too. Paxil Kind of makes me Hypomanic but then I quickly get depressed again. I have been Cycling Paxil for 2 years now constantly changing the dose up and down to keep it working. I tried lithium the other day. I bummed like 10 300mg pills off of someone I know that takes it.The lithium keep the Paxil working. I told my doctor this but anything I suggest he totally disagrees on. Its like he has some kind of doctor ego where he can only come up with Ideas and what I think doesn't matter. He just put me on an anti-psychotic called risperdal. Its making me even more depressed and slowing my thinking. I'm changing doctors and finding one that will listen to me. I read a post on here where someone said the key to beating Social Phobia is a controled Hypomania and I belive this to be true.
