This is my first time posting here...Some posts here described me to a tee: I am 24 yr old with social phobia with severe comorbid depression that also started at 15 (scary,lol) so I thought now I would start. I have tried all the usual meds and most mentioned in this thread with the single exception of Nardil since I am sure that I would mess up at some point with my diet and end up killing myself heh... but I would like to relay what has worked for me: GHB.
The only reason I came out and mentioned it was after reading the insightful thought on addiction (amen to that). The med community and society in general dont understand that as adult human beings we should have the right to make that personal decision, to make that trade-off between either hating life (actually not even living one, as is the case with severe social phobs) and relying on a drug to enjoy it, which is the case with most psychiatric drugs anyhow.
Anyways, back to the point... I discovered GHB on my own after trying everything else and my God it worked. I am now outgoing, dont have that crippling fear of scrutiny or "mental block" in conversations as was decribed and I am now completing college finally with good grades and *gasp* lots of friends. It dissolves inhibitions better than alcohol, but with the RIGHT dosage still leaves you clear-headed and able to function and best of all actually MAKES you want to be social.
It is now a FDA-approved drug called Xyrem, but it is used only for narcolepsy (it is THE most controlled prescrip. drug, although its only sched. 3, wierd i know) ...hopefully that will change soon as I've heard clinical trials are in the pipeline for some psychiatric conditions, but until then I'll have to get mine illcitly :( unless I can find a doc willing to prescribe. I urge you to ask all yours, its worth a try. Of course ymmv, but my the mileage on my odometer is flying by, and its a great ride :)
