Treatment 4 soc anx: Ssri as prozac, paxil, (paroxetine) zoloft, xelexa... Can be used a single agent or combined with one or more other meds depending on gravity of anxiety. Ideally, psychotherapy should always be done along with meds. The cause of anxiety must be dealt with, if found, to treat to the root of the cause to allow resolution of the problem. Need perseverance and good motivation to be successful.
