NiteOfTheLivingNumb: Forget the meds. Go for cognitive-behavioral therapy with or without some form of suggestion/ visualization/. meditation or some treatment related to PTSD. In other words some form of behavioral therapy that addresses the phobia by means of integrating the conscious and subconscious mind, not just some drug that dulls the senses or feelings. (No zombie I know-of has agoraphobia.)
