I have not in as much as I do not have social phobia. But I have read reviews of Parnate suggesting that it can work for the same disorders as Nardil, but simply has not built up the same reputation. My thinking is that this is probably because Nardil was so heavily studied by Michael Liebowitz and the investigators at Columbia for social anxiety and social phobia.
Social anxiety is a feature of my depression. When Parnate helps with the depression, it also helps with the social anxiety.
