hi. -all- psych drugs alter brain chemistry. they don't -fix- anything. that's not necessarily a bad thing, its just...keep in mind; all the drugs "work" by taking what is probably more or less normal brain chemistry and disrupting it, resulting in changes to mood, activity level, behavior, etc.

i don't know about social phobia, but antidepressants aren't so great, as a class, for depression and many other indications. not trying to be a debbie downer, its just...in severe depression, they easily outperform placebo. less severe depressive states, the performance is far less impressive.


have you tried wellbutrin w/ remeron? or effexor xr w/ remeron? the 2nd combo is nicknamed "california rocket fuel," and it helps some people with severe and/or "treatment-resistant" depression. I suppose one could ask about Cymbalta, instead of the effexor xr (would make getting the dose correct a lot easer...).

do be careful, though. id personally strongly advise against using any tranquilizer/antipsychotic, if you can avoid it. TD is often irreversible, even if the drug is discontinued.

id avoid tca drugs, personally. i took tofranil-PM (just a cleaned up version of Tofranil) for a while, and...whoa. it lifted my mood a bit, but it came at a cost, plus the drugs are very toxic, both in overdose and over long term, full dose use.


ok. hope this helps.
