Social Anxiety Background
I've had SAD since I was 14 years old or so. Managed to graduate from Law School, despite all difficulties. Have been on and off several meds. Somehow, depression got in the way.

Treatment Experience
I'm currently on Cymbalta, 60mg, once a day (it's been 4 months or so). Stopped Lexapro because I felt that it wasn't working for me anymore.
I'm actually surprised that Cymbalta has helped me cope with mild depression (which seems to have vanished) and SAD, without so many of the side-effects of previous medications (except for the low libido and constipation).
