Several options: There are a number of worthwhile meds that can facilitate improved social interaction w/ less anxiety. It takes more than meds though- you need a plan, you prob need expert counsel, & most especially u need lots of opportunity to "practice" being social. Do things with a social context- regularly! and, it may require >1med; getting the right med doses & multi-drug regimen is crucial & an expert md.

Social anxiety: Selective Serotonin Reuptake inhibitors would be the first choice of medication for Social Anxiety - there are a number to chose from. However, if you have social anxiety - don't just rely on a drug. Have you had cognitive behavioral therapy?

D/w provider: This is an issue that will need to be addressed with your psychiatrist. The doctors on the internet do not what past responses you have had to medications or your full history. Please d/w with prescribing provider.
