Thanks for the feedback. I am wondering, what aspects of social anxiety did Zyprexa have an effect on? And also, did that combo affect your desire to socialize?

> I was on 5mg Zyprexa for 8 years and it was amazing for social phobia. 20mg Prozac by itself got me about halfway where I wanted to be, but the addition of Zyprexa was a total cure.
>
> It not only worked as a maintenance therapy, but at times when I was not on it and needed some quick relief in a crowd but didn't want to go the xanax route, zyprexa had me comfortable and at-ease in that crowd in about 1 to 2 hours after dosing.
>
> Seroquel sort of worked, but not really. I never took more than 50 and only took it a few times as-needed, not continuously, so I can't judge it fairly. The way seroquel worked was by basically making me so drugged I didn't know or care what was going on around me.
>
> More than ten years ago I tried low dose amisulpride for a few weeks. It increased social phobia at first, but in short time it was excellent at ridding social phobia.
>
> So anyway, my experience with antipsychotics on social phobia have been very positive, but I am mostly giving credit to Zyprexa, and secondarily to Amisulpride. I can't speak much of the others.
