Hi Clayton, I was curious. Are/were your taking the regular xanax? Have you tried the XR form? I currently am taking 2mg Xanax XR plus a low dose of prozac daily for Social Anxiety/OCD/Depression. I too tried Klonopin in the past and had horrible memory impairment and mental sluggishness. I was surprised with Xanax that I did not have the mental impairments, I was predicting it would be worse than the Klonopin. There probably is a little cognitive impairment from the Xanax, but it is doing more good for me than bad. My doctor though, is only allowing me to use the Xanax for a 3 or 4 month period. He says, "just time enough to get my anxiety under control", and then I can taper off and just stay on Prozac for long-term. Hmmmm... time will tell. I'd also like to note that I've tried Effexor before and it didn't help a whole lot on the anxiety/nervousness side of social phobia but it helps a lot in the area of social motivation. I was more aggressive and had a stronger desire to socialize. Probably because of it's effects on norepinephrine. Just this week I got the idea of trying Tribulus terrestris with my Xanax & Prozac because of it's supposed to have effects on testosterone & norepinephrine. So I tried, and honestly, was amazed. It made me more vigorous and pro-social. I was talking to people I normally wouldn't talk to at work and doing it with more enthusiasm. Anyways, my combo of Xanax/Prozac/Tribulus seems to be working good for my social anxiety. I'm a little worried about the time when I have to taper off the Xanax though.
