In brief: Yes
Medications called benzodiazepines can be used for an acute case of speaking phobia.
Even better is toastmaster's which is a mutual support group where everyone practices giving talks in a less threatening environment.

In addition, if the problem is a performance anxiety, propranolol can be used about an hour before the presentation to essentially trick your brain into believing iti is not anxious.
