any good meds for social anxiety?

August 11, 2011 @ 22:13:34
Ok so i have moderate social anxiety. Basically I feel nervous around people i dont know, sometimes i hate being in large groups of people when i have to speak or my voice gets shakey, sometimes i cant think of shit to say. It's worse some days, other days I can talk to people fine. Alcohol does help obviously, especially with girls. Does anyone else have social anxiety? Do you take meds for it? If so which ones work well? im probably going to see a therapist soon.

If u see a therapist they will just tell you to socialize more.. Its a common fear people especially with people who tend to stick by themselves alot.. This day in age i see alot more kids having it cause they rather sit on the internet then actually interact with people in real life.. Which would just make it worse and if thats what kinda person u are, log off the internet and interact with people.. And for getting nervous with a bunch of people around, u just gotta realize that they are just people man.. Most likely u might claustrophobic rather than having an actually fear of being around people.. Meds will just be a short result for the problem but not long time.. See a therapist and just interact with people more often!

A therapist/psychologist couldn't prescribe meds anyhow, you'd have to see your general physician who might recommend something like Celexa.

i'm the best mayne, i deed it

♥♥♥♥♥, you have 500 posts in 3 months on Hb and I'm sure this isn't the only forum you frequent. What I mean to say is get out more, meet new people, get a hobby, etc...being online 24/7 doesn't help. I think you are just shy; with some confidence, you'll be good.

BTW you talk shit like a motherfucker on HB doe...social anxiety? lol never crossed my mind

funny you say this, because i actually just landed a job doing street promo (handing out flyers) for one of the dopest clubs in the city. I'm not sure how I am going to handle it yet. As I say, im usually alright, but same days my social anxiety gets bad. I'm not a huge conversationlist, like i sometimes have a hard time keeping a conversation flowing. I kind of wanted this job for a couple reasons, one because its money plus free guest list all the time, but also because it would force me to interact with more people which i think would be good for me. I just get discouraged at times.

I don't have social anxiety, but



I posted a thread about anxiety a few weeks ago. It was more of an episode than a persistent condition. I found out being open and talking about it with other people helped me a ton.

real talk. step out of your comfort zone..

You are just shy. Do you shit your pants when you are at the mall? Do you start tripping out going crazy feeling doomness when you meet new people? if not, you don't have social anxiety.

Shy ass ♥♥♥♥♥.

Weed usually makes my anxiety worse.
August 12, 2011 @ 03:02:33
it's cuz you get uncomfortable at times, thats when you overthink.

in order to feel comfortable in an uncomfortable situation, you gotta get comfortable/used to what it's like to feel unconfortable, that way you'll end up being comfortable in what was an uncomfortable situation. so force yourself outside your comfort zone, you'll mentally adapt overtime

Cosign. But real talk. Relax. Deep breaths. Kick it with close friends. And let your freak flag fly. Eventually you'll find your swag and the anxiety will disappear. Surround yourself with non-judgmental people and the anxiety will disappear. Worked for me.

yea it can be. you should see a therapist though. NOT a psychiatrist cause they will just write you a scrip and let you go on your merry way. let him/her know what the fuck is up and they can help you try and overcome whatever is holding you back.

if your looking for the easy way out and just want a pill to calm you down, then attivan I think would be the way to go. Xanax is too intense for something like social anxiety and attivan will last longer so if your in a social setting, lets say all night, it has a longer half life and will keep you calm rather than popping a new pill all night.
