If the anxiety you are suffering from is of the socially anxious and socially paranoid type (they are judging me, etc.) then my belief is that two classes of drugs will make those symptoms worse: drugs that raises dopamine levels (not including drugs that stimulate dopamine release) and drugs that act as norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors. In regards to your question about Seroquel - As much as people think APs are the work of the devil, I think that under the proper guidance they can be very effective in combination with SSRIs for social phobia, especially if there is a paranoid component to it (which there usually is).
