Unhappy Social anxiety disorder?

I know I have social anxiety disorder and I'm on medication for anxiety and depression but it seems like my social anxiety disorder is still out of control. I HATE going anywhere where there are people around. I do go shopping but very rarely. When my mom goes places I always sit in the car instead of going inside. I'm so scared that I will see someone I know in the store and will have to talk to them. I'm also scared of being made fun of by someone. When I do go in stores I'm constantly looking around to make sure that no one I know is there. I get all sweaty and my heart races. If I do see someone I know, I try to dodge them so that I don't have to talk to them. I'm just mostly scared of looking stupid I guess. When someone asks me a question sometimes it's just like my mind goes blank and I can't remember anything. Like even if someone asks me a simple question like when school starts I'll just panick and then say the wrong thing. I hate it so bad. Can anyone relate? How can I get over this and are there any medications to help with this or not?
