Hi,

I've been reading a lot about cycloserine recently. For anyone that's not heard of it before have a look at this thread: http://www.socialanxietysupport.com/forum/f30/anyone-tried-d-cycloserine-for-sa-11189/
Does anyone know what kind of exposure is good to use with cycloserine. I mean in studies they used public speaking, but I am wondering, will it work if I just go into the city on a night out and try and chat to people? Or even going shopping suring the day and try and chat to people? Is it basically anything that makes you anxious?

I guess the advantage of doing public speaking is that it is a controlled environment and so the outcome will be positive (nobody will boo at you or laugh while you are doing it). And since cycloserine increases emotional memory, I guess you don't want the experience to be a negative one as it may lower SA? The risk of going into the city and talking to people is people may not give you a good response.
