I think it'd be hard to create meds specifically for social phobia b/c its kind of a complicated disorder, and no one seems to fully understand the biological underpinnings of the problem.

There are, luckily, a number of treatments that work. MAOIs, some SSRIs, benzos, etc. have been shown helpful in both social phobia and other psychiatric problems (social phobia often occurs with other problems).

I have social phobia, too, so I understand your frustration. The disorder can be utterly devastating. For me, treating my bipolar disorder and taking loads of supplements and doing talk therapy has proven helpful. I hope you find something that works for you, too.

Good luck
