I drank a lot for many years, socially and alone. I've never had much of a social life as an adult without drinking.
I was on sertraline. Personally, it didn't help my social anxiety at all, but it did level out my mood just like you. I know it is different for everyone. I don't want to be on them long term though so I'm off it now.It sure sucks.. :/ I have been reading that Sertraline (SSRI) can do wonders on social anxiety and I am starting it now.
Have anyone of you ever tried SSRI?
I've tried Prozac before and it did lift general anxiety, it took me from a dark place. But it didn't help enough with social anxiety (I still drank alcohol on occassions). Maybe I should have had higher dosage as I was only on 20mg. Anyway, I am putting my hopes now in Sertraline + exposure therapy.
