L-Dopa EGCG L-Tyrosine PEA combo?
I have suffered from social anxiety since I was 12/13 I am 26 now. I have tried some SSRI / SNRI medication but found they did nothing from social anxiety but helped depression slightly. I get depressed mainly due to my Social anxiety and the ways it hold me back. Iíve recently stopped taking Citalopram as it seems pretty pointless. I saw my docter recently and he just wanted to try another SSRI / SNRI which seems even more pointless.
I also have alot of ADHD type symptoms, difficult to concentrate / stay focused / disorganised, impulsive, emotional difficulties, anxiety etc but Iíve never had much luck with the NHS so think it will be almost impossible to get diagnosed.
I want to try to expose myself to social situations however due to intense anxiety this is very difficult.
I am looking at taking;
I am hoping the L-Tyrosine & PEA will have an anxiety calming affect (Iíve always found green tea calming)
I am taking the L-Dopa / EGCG to make socialising more rewarding / me more social.
Can anyone offer any advice please?
