Yeah Klonopin is a type of tranquilizer kind of drug like Xanax, mostly used to treat panic disorders. It is highly addictive like the previous poster mentioned.
This does not seem like a good medication to treat social anxiety in my opinion. There are a few medications out there that are designed specifically for this type of disorder like Zoloft and Paxil and otheres, so you should speak to your Doctor about some options.
Good luck to you!
