Hi Myco, it is not raising the norepinephrine levels, but the reuptake inhibitors specifically, that I think are not good for social phobia. This is based on a lot of research and personal experience, and is by no means to be considered gospel. Looking at what is out there today, I think it is pretty much accepted that the most effective drugs for social anxiety are MDMA, GHB, NARDIL and KLONOPIN, and for some people, the SSRIs, while APs are the most effective for paranoia. So combinations of the above, as long as they are safe and legal (not mdma or ghb obviously) should be effective to some degree.

Why do you think that drugs used to raise dopamine levels and norepinephrine would make these conditions worse? I've just begun tyrosine this morning with nardil in a very small dose with all the proper vitamin and mineral accompaniments. I still think that seroquel lowers DA and SA. The drop in my moods when I started it a week ago for sleep on nardil (25mg - tiny dose) is to coincidental to not be associated I think.

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).
