> I've been on Lexapro 15 mg and Clonazepam 0.5 mg 2 times/day for a while but I still had a lot of social anxiety and trouble leaving my house, and I saw my ARNP (Psychiatric nurse practitioner who prescribes my meds) a few days ago and he put me on generic Depakote, since I told him my mind races and I go very fast. He told me it could help my anxiety but so far it seems to be making me feel a little more anxious and feel floaty and not grounded, they way I do when I'm anxious.

MAOI's, particularly Nardil, withoubt doubt, are the best.
Benzo's also very helpful.
For pure social anxiety I would stay clear of any antipsychotics.
