Good morning. I'm new to this but hoping to connect with others that can offer insight and support. My teenage son is graduating from high school this year and will be attending college about 4 hours away from home. He plays sports and will be playing in college. He is a strong good looking young man but he has social anxiety. He is ok in most situations but before going to a party or out with friends he becomes anxious and nauseous. My husband and I are worried about him going away to school this fall feeling this way especially in a new environment which is stressful enough. Our Dr. prescribed Setraline but he did not like the side effects. He now has a beta blocker but is nervous to take it worried about it's side effects. I need to get him help before he goes to school....any thoughts?

Have him try setraline. Also be encouraging, don't act too worried, I'm sure most students are anxious about this as well
