Social Anxiety Background
Social anxiety that stems from PTSD.

Other Treatments
I've tried Zoloft, Prozac, and Adderall (Generic). I find Lexapro to be the most potent and works the best. And the side effects do not seem to be as bad as with the other drugs.

Treatment Experience
I find for me that this drug is the best option for social anxiety. The downside is that it aggravates my RLS, causes low sex drive, and inhibits orgasm. But even with all that, its still worth it. I am still concerned about the effects wearing off, but have not had a problem yet and I am only taking 5mg a day.
