Public Speaking Anxiety / Phobia

Please help. I'm in desperate need of either OTC drugs or prescription drugs to either cure or help me with my anxiety of speaking in public. I'm at a point in my career where public speaking has become more prominent and I get scared to death doing it. I try to avoid it at all costs. Please help.

Re: Public Speaking Anxiety / Phobia

Hi jeff

get some valium type med from a doc, taken 1 hour before speaking this calms your body and mind for a while

OTC travel sickness pills or allergy meds may help but generally not as well

also do a public speaking course, using the meds to help at first, everyone is nervous at first and they teach you to cope

read something out loud and get used to the sound of your own voice
