Hi Peter,

I can commisterate with a lot that you're going through. SA's caused me to ruin an awful lot of friendships over the years, and the depression that goes with it is agonizing. SSRIs never helped me one bit, in fact they only made everything worse, I think. Then my doc added Zyprexa (first to Zoloft, then to Effexor), and the tension and worrying vanished overnight; I enjoyed my first holiday get-together in years. Just something to think about for the future, although many people here might advise against Z. for anxiety. It helped me, although I eventually had to move on and try something else.

Why not just take the SSRI? At least you'll have made a decision, and you'll also prob. get at least a placebo effect!

Best of luck, keep us posted if you still need help. :)
