I have been on Concerta for a few months. I also have social anxiety. My doctor tried me on cymbalta with my concerta and I found it wasn't making a difference. Unless you count the bad side effects I was getting. Anyone pair anything with concerta to help with social anxiety?

Klonopin and Zoloft have worked for me in the past. Klonopin is the only benzodiazepine that doesn't affect my memory.

Lexapro worked for me. I've been off of it and have noticed a little more anxiety, but not nearly as much as before I started. I take Buspar for migraine symptoms and I think it helps with anxiety as well, but lexapro is probably better.

I take buspar. It works pretty well although it takes time for it to build up and become effective. I used to take xanax but that became a problem for me. Benzos can be great for some but as long term solution you have to be careful.
