Hello,

Yeah, I agree, if meds seem to do the trick, and your social anxiety is only when depressed, perhaps a medication only approach is worthwhile.

CBT certainly is more time consuming, frustrating and challenging! It's hard to do it with a lot going on in your life. And yes, some of the exercises do seem silly. That is one of the first obstacles you would have to overcome if you want to try CBT.

CBT worked magically for me across the entire spectrum of anxiety disorders (I have PD, SA and GAD with comorbid depression).

But if meds work magically, as you say, why fix what ain't broken?

Best of luck to you. Social anxiety is a real bummer!

Best,

Matt
