I've noticed several small studies in Medline, including a recent one, that provide strong evidence of Luvox's benefits for social anxiety. So there's a high probability it will help.

But I've tried five different AD's, Neurontin, Xanax, Tranxene, BuSpar, and Beta Blockers, and none of them have been anywhere near as effective and side-effect free as low-dose Klonopin. But note that I do not have depression.

> I have been on 20 mg of Paxil for 10 months for anxiety, social anxiety, and depression. I responded well to it, but because of significant weight gain and memory problems, I cut down to 15 mg. My pdoc now has me on 10 mg for the next week and is considering transitioning me to Luvox (which she says does not have as much weight and memory issues).
> Has anyone used Luvox for social anxiety and found it helpful?
