My experience with benzos for Social anxiety has been:
A) They all work to some extent
B) Ativan is weak for me
C) Valium and Klonopin work the best for me
D) Xanax works very well to, but its majorly
short T1/2 left me with 4x daily dosing and rebound anxiety, and dosage escalation over the course of ~1 1/2 years.
Perhaps adding and Anti-Depressant like zoloft at a low dose would allow you take the long half life benzos and avoid the depression.
Hope that helps,
