I was just wondering if anyone had any experience with meds that actually helped with social anxiety and what they’re called?

Propranolol will help with the physical symptoms but not the psychological ones. Sertraline did not work for me but I know others who it has helped.

I would highly for social anxieyt, recommend Pregabalin, this is a marvellous med to take for anxiety rapidly increase levels to then decrease, and I would seriously, and really be lost without my Pregabalin.

Best regards.

Thanks for the recommendations the thing is They won’t prescribe me klonopin and they said pregabalin can cause a lazy eye as a side effect

Why won't they prescribe you klonopin? Are they concerned about addiction?

I take citalopram for my social anxiety. I was going out of my mind not being on medication - and I've been on other meds in the past, as well - but citalopram has helped and also hasn't given me personally, any negative side effects. I'm on the highest dose.
