I am suffereing from social anxiety / phobia since last few years. I get lots of sweating during social situations. I had been treated with most of the types of SSRI (like paroxetine, Veniz, Fluoxitine, Ecitalopram etc) but no benefits. Also I tried propenolol, clonazeam etc. Can I take Stablon (SSRE) 12.5 mg? I read good feedback on Stablon on internet like less side effects etc. How will I completely get cured.

Thanks for the query.

You have provided me with good information.

You are suffering from social anxiety/phobia and undergone treatment with SSRI (Selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors).

Stablon (SSRE) is is a serotonin reuptake accelerator and works opposite to the action of SSRI's. Stablon medicine is used in major depression, depressed bipolar disorder, dysthymia or adjustment disorder. Stablon does not appear to be associated with adverse cognitive, psychomotor, sleep, cardiovascular or bodyweight effects and has a low propensity for abuse.

It is good drug, but before changing to this medication, you will need to consult your physician. If you stop your previous medication suddenly or add a new medication, there might be many side effects. There is a possibility you will get cured, along with this you can try other forms of treatment like cognitive behavioural therapy too.

I hope, I have answered your query. Please accept my answer if you have no further queries.
