Hi all.

I have been researching the different medications available to try and counter my social anxiety. I found that only 3 medications had been approved to help with this, they are:

1. Seroxat/Paxil

2. Zoloft

3. Effexor

The first one seemed to be very effective with people suffering with SA, I just wondered if anybody had used any of these and if so what did you find with it?

I am going to see my GP soon so wanted to research what was available, I don't think counselling is for me
