Lightbulb Re: valium vs klons vs atavin for social anxiety

I conquered social anxiety slowly by examining my thought patterns. I thought it would never work. It did.
You might ask a Dr about buspar or an anti-depressant SSRI(but i think Paxil is NOW KNOWN TO BE NOT A gOOD CHOICE for social anxiety.

Good luck

Re: valium vs klons vs atavin for social anxiety

I have tried all three and personally like klonopin. It is longer lasting out of the three.

Xanax made me very tired and I felt hungover the next day.

Ativan was OK. It helped me through some tough times.

Klonopin I do like the best - but I take it for those times when I have to go out and feel my panic setting in. I split a .5mg tablet in two. and it does the job.

I agree with J2006. Klonopon has worked well for me in the past. Better than Ativan. Xanax did nothing for me but put me out.
