Hi z,
In my case I'm pretty sure the social anxiety predated the major depression. Actually, looking back, I suffered from social anxiety and dysthymia since my teenage years. The major depression followed much later in life. As a teenager I had severe rejection sensitivity, which is one of the diagnosing criteria for atypical depression. I really wish I would have been treated early in life for these disorders. Maybe, if it could have been nipped in an early stage I would not have had to go through the major atypical depression. I believe that social anxiety is under diagnosed and under treated. It can be debilitating and can affect all aspects of a person's life. From the choice of a mate to a choice of career. Huge impact on a life!

I know the clonazepam is hard on you, but in my case, I believe it reacts synergistically with Nardil to help with my social anxiety and atypical depression. They both affect GABA, and this seems to be one of the keys to effective treatment of social anxiety.

Live long and prosper - no, that's Star Trek! May the Force be with You!
