Avatar f tn So I've just recently become open with my social anxiety. I remember being in middle school and thinking that something was horribly wrong with me. I would get so nervouse around people. My body would tremble, my voice would shake and I couldn't think clearly. I've become more comfortable with being uncomfortable, and yes I do notice that there are plenty of people that are shy, but I really hate the fact that my real personality can't show when I'm around people.
595559 tn?1241140638 I have EXTREME social anxiety.......just going to the grocery store makes me go crazy in my head and get super nervous! I am perscribed to Seroguil and Clozopan. I have been self-medicating now for a long time. (with pain pills and xanax bars) I am in the process of withdrawling form them once and for all. I want to learn how to deal with people and everyday life situations without getting really high anxiety that can lead to panic attacks! My Dad has always had this problem...
4502768 tn?1538777982 Is there a link between panic disorder / anxiety and hyperventilation syndrome? How to get them under control / personal experiences anyone? Thank you and God Bless.
1489305 tn?1315179507 I have no self confidence, I want to fix that. Does anyone have any suggestions, my psychologist told me about this book called 7 days to self confidence, or 7 steps to self confidence or something like that... I really don't want to have social anxiety for the rest of my "miserable" life. Advice wanted, nay, needed.
Avatar n tn I'm hoping someone here can help, perhaps a Ph.D. or someone with knowledge/experience of medicines-- I have been diagnosed ADHD since I was a little kid (early grade school) and diagnosed with social anxiety at 17yrs old (towards the end of high school). I've been on and off multiple medicines for both (I've been on 5-10 different drugs; see my personal feedback below on some of the meds if you are interested in that information). I also very much think I have OCD.
Avatar f tn Im dealing with social anxiety for a long time please help me to find how I can deal with it?
Avatar m tn The psychological factors may include stress and anxiety in daily life and depression due to personal, professional , financial and other social issues. Medical causes of premature ejaculation include abnormal hormone level, reflex activity of ejaculatory system, thyroid problems, diabetes, hypertension and neurological causes. Try distracting yourself when you feel you are about to ejaculate. Take a deep breath and stay relaxed during intercourse.
Avatar m tn I have been prescribed clonezapam 1mg 3x daily for social anxiety. I recently missed an appointment with the new Dr. in the office. I rescheduled the appointment, but the earliest they had available is over a month from now. I made the appointment for Jan 3 2011. The Dr. has refused to fill my RX until he sees me in his office. My question is, can I abruptly stop taking benzodiazepines? Why is that the Dr. not filling the rx?
Avatar m tn But as I read your post I get the sense of social anxiety more than anything else. Were you find social situations awkward? There is medication for anxiety alone. But that would boil down to what your doctor sees wrong with you. My way of looking at some anti-depressants is that can make an anxiety sufferer worse because it is lifting them. As the drug is meant to do. Lift the mood. Anxiety medication is to relax you. Bring you down. I'm not saying all anti-depressants are bad for anxiety.
Avatar m tn I've suffered with social phobia my entire life. Finally got it properly treated in my early 20s with therapy/meds. Recently my doc and I decided to try to out tapering me off of Prozac. We decided to stay on. When I got down to 20mg after 8 weeks I was neglecting hygiene and stopped going to the gym. Looking at a store would provoke panic before I went in. Thus we went back up to 40mg. After 12 weeks I would still have trouble with eye contact and going into social situations.
Avatar f tn Hi guys, Ive been through Tramadol and Codeine withdrawal time after time after time - I cant seem to stay away from the stuff. I used to have major problems with it, but I'm a bad habit, recreational user now - (for social situations as I'm a bpd and bipolar sufferer - I have cut down now!
Avatar n tn thank you for your answer, probably not the answer I was hoping to hear but it is the truth and I have to accept it. I think I'm suffering from social anxiety. I think I've made a good first step in admitting my problem for the first time in my life, and it seems that I should see a doctor as soon as possible.
Avatar f tn Ive had social anxiety disorder for over 6 months but finally went to the doctor last week to be diagnosed and put on meds-the doctor put me on PROZAC 20mg daily, im on them a week now but feeling slightly worse the past few days,even slightly depressed. im just wondering will these feelings surpass eventully? as my doctor said it can take at least 2 weeks for them to settle. can anyone please help me as this is ruining my life. also is therapy a good solution for anxiety?
Avatar f tn Like the title says, I have social anxiety. Its at its worst when I'm at work. My Dr had prescribed me ativan and Zoloft. It didn't work and I'm off of those now. I need help. My job as a technician, fixing machines at a manufacturing facility, I get nervous whenever a machine breaks down and the alarm goes off. That's when I have to go and fix it. Since its on an assembly line, there are people that work on the machines. And when they break down, I have to fix it.

He stopped paxil and prescribed zoloft (sertraline) 150 mg a day. morning dose 50 mg and night dose 100 mg for 15 days. what will he prescribe after 15 days that's I don't know but I want to know that can suddenly dose be changed like this?
Avatar f tn Anyone else get social anxiety in big groups? I have always been an anxious person in general but i have always Been able to manage it and show up to group events. I have noticed now though the farther along i get the more anxious i get and the more i get the overwhelming urge to bolt from events. Its getting bad too. Any one else or any ideas?
494087 tn?1257793207 I was diagnosed with social anxiety and panic disorder a year ago. I take remeron and klonopin but the doctor says only to take them at night. I think I need some medication to get through the day but I am afraid to tell him I am having trouble getting through the day. I always have a butterfly feeling in my stomach and when I have to go in public I get very nervous and feel like everyone is looking at me. I guess my question is does anyone else feel this way and what should I do?
Avatar f tn Yes, it does sound like social anxiety. Have you thought about getting in to counseling to help with this?
5148952 tn?1364321766 You are correct that the Abilfy will not help with your social anxiety. And while I do not mean to imply that your social worker has not helped you, very few, if any, social workers are trained psychologists who can help you with this problem. It may be worth considering professional therapy to beat this phobia once and for all.
Avatar f tn I have a presentation coming up next week, so I decided to go and seek medical help today. I went to my doctor and he diagnosed me with social anxiety. He said that the best treatment is cognitive behavioral therapy, but he prescribed me some medication to get me through this semester. He prescribed 10 mg propranolol (inderal) 3 times a day and an extra 10 mg inderal 1 hour before the presentation + 0.25 mg Xanax 1 hour before the presentation.
Avatar m tn I know, when you feel the anxiety, it leads to more anxiety because you are anxious they will notice your anxiety... Higher heart rate, blood pressure, chest pains, wish to immediately leave the place... And to me, it seems better to leave home at night or when it is colder or rainy, because there are less people out there, on the street... You are not alone!
722310 tn?1234762137 I have a question about social anxiety accompanied with phobia. I am a mother of 5 and I have had social anxiety since I was young. I am now 45. I bagan to drink and use drugs at an early age, to help bring comfort when I was around people. I had it pretty well managed, by making myself get out. I have had counseling in the past, but I never discussed this with the counsler, because I really didn't think it was a major problem for me. My 2nd son is turning 16 next month.
Avatar f tn I would also have to agree that counseling can really help with social anxiety. First of all, don't feel ashamed or embarrased about it because many people suffer from this in my opinion. In my experience, counseling can she some light on why you are feeling anxious, make it less confusing, and gvie you as step by step approach to confront it.
