> hi jahl. hope everythings well with you. i was wondering if you wouldnt mind telling me a little bit about how your social anxiety has been helped. specifically, i feel very hypersensitive to criticism, and i always feel so afraid of criticism even towards others, even when im not the one doing it. does sulpride help with this sort of thing?

Hi John. Sulpiride helps my condition as a whole. So yes, I am less hyper-sensitive to criticism. In social situations I feel a little more at ease and I can engage in conversation more readily. I am not as obsessed with the thought of strangers scrutinising me (in a critical way) and I don't (subconsciously) try and second guess what others are thinking about as much, or read too much into what they might say.

Physical symptoms are also helped; I don't feel so 'panicky' and I don't sweat profusely as before. Which is nice :) . I don't feel as tense when I'm out and about. Don't feel as 'threatened' either; means I'm not quite so likely to 'fly' at someone.

Put simply, Sulpiride benefits my s. phobia as a whole, probably bringing about a 50% improvement, which, whilst being far from ideal, is 50% more than any other drug has managed. However, I'm actively searching for something more effective, and something w/o the risk of TD.

I don't think anyone who knows me would guess I'm s. phobic (I'm perceived to be some kind of 'tough guy') and Sulpiride helps me keep it under my hat.

I have no idea why one might be more popular than the other. Having differing pharmacological profiles, I imagine one might benefit a given individual more than the other (*if at all*). This was so in my case. Maybe Amisulpride is mentioned more often than Sulpiride is because it is widely available throughout Continental Europe and so is easier to obtain w/o a prescription ('back in the days' there was a lot of talk here of how to obtain Amisulpride). [that is NOT a tip, Dr B!]

Best,
J.
