Post SSRI for social phobia (workplace vs social situations)

I have been taking SSRIs for social phobia. It has really helped for "social" situations, but less effective for work and business situations, for example in meetings and presentations, with clients and colleagues, where I don't want to look anxious.

Has anyone had experience using SSRIs for social and workplace situation phobias? Should I try increasing the dosage?

Hi these meds sometimes need the dose adjusting and occasionally never work at all.
they should reduce anxiety and nerves during all situations, social, business, etc.

books on overcoming anxiety have much helpful advice, exercise is also relaxing

Thanks. I can positively say that the SSRIs have helped me in many respects.
