> Well best to stay away from the benzos regardless, as they can be depressing in and of themselves and they tend to unavoidably decrease cognitive functioning in the long run. Keep trying different doctors even neurologists until you find one compassionate enough to presribe you xyrem.
> xyrem is GHB, recently FDA approved for cataplexy and very difficult to obtain (especially for psych conditions). As for me personally, ive tryed about 25 different ad's of every class, several benzos, AP's (nightmare), and even stims, to NO avail whatsoever. Found the right doc and established a good rapport, and know i take xyrem tid. It was been a MIRACLE, i am not only not fearful of anything social (work, family, friemds, parties, any situation)i am a "social butterfly" now. I feel like im the person i always wanted to be, I have those witty comebacks, jokes, etc that I was too paralyzed with fear to let out(the ones that u always seem to think of after the fact lol), in fact, dare I say it, but i am popular now :) my grades have soared, i have a positive outlook on life its wonderful!!!
> As a word of caution, of course, this substance must be respected, and monitored closely by your doc, and the importance of correct dosage cannot be understated. Most of all, only responsible, mature patients who are serious about getting well (not getting worse by abusing their meds) need apply.

I too have tried at least 25 ad’s in every class and several stimulants plus a variety of other meds for depression and social phobia with no success and over time (8 years) I’m just getting worse as I lose hope and feel I have run out of options. My life depends on getting help and I know my p-doc doesn’t know what else to try so Xyrem sounds like a ray of hope to me. Finding a doctor to prescribe it - that sounds overwhelming - where to start? If I didn’t know about its street drug reputation, I would just ask my current doctor about trying it but knowing that reputation will make me feel like a deviant if I ask about trying it. What a shame. This is my first time posting here. Thanks for all the information. If someone knew of a doctor in my city (Seattle) that may prescribe Xyrem, are we allowed to exchange that information by personal email?

Any suggestions much appreciated.
