My younger sister took Zoloft for social anxiety and told me that it did indeed work, but that perhaps she needed her medication monitored better and that she didn't feel she was "taking enough." I also know she was given a very small dose of Xanax, but she didn't follow through with that, either. LittleMiracle, I am a strong believer that no one need suffer. Please talk to your doc and be as honest with him/her as you are on the boards. There's absolutely nothing to be ashamed of and everything to gain by seeking help.
