Re: anybody know any med for social anxiety

I have heard that Paxil seems to work well for social anxiety. Also, some people respond well to a beta blocker, like atenolol, for social anxiety, as it is often used for performance anxiety, like theatre performances or speech giving, and that has some overlap with social anxiety. Paxil is an anti-anxiety/anti-depressant. A beta blocker acts completely differently and works by blocking adrenaline and norepinephrine, the fight or flight hormones associated with panic. Both can be taken long term. I would research them and then discuss with your Dr. as both are Rx only.
