> I'm glad that MAOI's work for you, but I don't understand why you keep saying the success rate is 99%. It's closer to 50%. Please, if you have a link to a reputable study showing a 99% success rate, I'd be very curious to see it. Cecilia

First of all I don't 'keep' on saying it. If I am not mistaken this is the second time out of I don't know how many posts that I mentioned that. And it is a figure that I DO remember reading somewhere on the web and will dig for again. In the meantime here is one which states a 70% success rate, not 50% like you think....

"Current research suggests that the monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), especially phenelzine, are the most highly effective medications for treating social phobias. In studies, about 70% of subjects improve significantly within four weeks. Occasionally, however, a social phobic can experience an exaggerated response to an MAOI and become too talkative, outgoing or socially uninhibited. In that case the prescribing physician will lower the medication dosage or stop it altogether."
