I think it depends on what one's social anxiety is like. I think a few people have a sort of paranoid, self-centered way of seeing things that could be helped by antipsychotic. The general sedative nature could also be slightly helpful, like hydrazine. I think for many people though, myself included, they are very bad, in addtion to any side effects. For me, social anxiety isn't about everyone looking at me, its about not feeling central. The antidopaminergic action is exactly what isn't needed. It magnifies the feeling of unimportance and lowness. Acting out this social role is to be avoidant. I think this is bourne out by research on dopamine function and social interaction. (the exception would be something like sulpiride.)
