> 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.
> Are there other good meds for severe social anxiety (other than SSRI's or SNRI's or benzodiazepines)? Like I read that Neurontin, Seroquel , and Zyprexa are good for social anxiety and generalized anxiety, and the AP's are grounding.

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.
