In my experience, Nardil is truly the best med for treating treatment resistant social anxiety and atypical depression. Most MDs do not like to listen to the anecdotal evidence written in sources like Psycho-Babble. Many MDs actually won't listen to any evidence that did not come from their limited ability to research. I use the information I gain from Babble and then support it with actual published studies. Sometimes a doctor will pay more attention if the evidence was published by another doctor. Here are some social anxiety studies which show a high degree of effectiveness from phenelzine.

Over the last few years, a number of medications have demonstrated their efficacy in the acute treatment of social anxiety disorder. At present, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors probably constitute the first line treatment, based on their safety, tolerability, and efficacy in the treatment of social anxiety disorder and common comorbid conditions. Data from single trials suggest that clonazepam, bromazepam, and gabapentin may have efficacy similar to the serotonin reuptake inhibitors, but further studies are needed to confirm these findings. The monoamine oxidase inhibitor phenelzine appears to be at least as efficacious as these other agents, but should be reserved for cases that fail to respond to these safer medications. ...
