I have had severe social anxiety, so bad that I didn't leave the house for 8 months and then I went to the hospital for help and they put me on Klonopin .05 mg and it works like magic, I have been out of the house more in the last week then I have in 8 months, I have the problem of being able to stay on the med that is working considering I don't have a Dr. I hope that helps

If you go to a psychiatrist and most GP's you will almost always get a drug. If you go to a therapist or psychologist that teats only anxiety they will usually tell you that no one recovers on drugs alone and for may people it makes them worse - plus getting off can be a hell no one can imagine - way worse than anxiety

Anxiety drugs can feel like a miracle until you try to stop them or they poop out on you

Way down the line drugs can have consequences - the other tools don’t and you wont need to be hooked into a doctor - pharmacy and worried when to take the next pill

I have been on clonazapam in varying amounts for over 20 yrs....can't tolerate any other meds since anal cancer in 2007.  Altho' my doctor and I have tried and retried several antidepressants...all have same serious side effects.

Now...the thing is: my medicine is just a base.  I do the work....get out each day...no hanging around apt staring out the window.

Therapy would be grand if you can find a therapist.  I am fortunate to have had free help @ MD Anderson after cancer treatment and the murder of my son.  So help is out there....be persistant.
