> Hi Daemon, I'm also in Australia and have depression and social anxiety. I've just recently been prescribed diazepam 5mg twice daily in addition to Zoloft 200 mg per day. So far the diazepam has done absolutely nothing.

Is diazepam on the PBS? and relatively inexpensive?

I wonder what other benzos are similar in Aus.- in terms of price and availability that might work for SAD?

Were you prescribed the Zoloft for social anxiety?

>My doctor said he could prescribe clonazepam, but only privately. I believe it costs about $22 a month for 0.5 mg twice a day, compared to the diazepam I'm taking at $11 a month.

Woah so 3mg a day would be $$$$$$$$

> He's also looking to get a health department authorisation for dextroamphetamine to both augment the antidepressant, and increase my sociability.

I thought amphetamines would make you anxious?

And he needs authorization from the HD?

>If I was you, I'd see your own psychiatrist ASAP for clonazepam.

Thanks I'm ringing up tommorow to go on the waiting list or maybe see another psych at that clinic.

Let the drug trials begin! :O\
