Social Anxiety Background
Debilitating generalized SA. Mostly physical manifestations of anxiety from since I was sentinent. SA for me is paralyzing overstimulation, inarticulateness, extreme tenseness.
Klonopin + an antidepressant seems to potentiate Klonopin, making it more effective. Also, Klonopin is a depressant, so taking an antidepressant with it can ameliorate its tendency to cause depression.
I've found klonopin to be extremely effective. It relaxes me physically and disinhibits me. It is able to turn me from "mute boy" into a very outgoing, sociable person.
However, it has side effects. It makes me drowsy. It builds dependence and tolerance when taken long-term. It damages cognition, learning, and memory. It makes me extremly drowsy.
I take it on weekends only.
