How can social anxiety disorder be treated?

Yes, please my son has acute social anxiety disorder and is taking depakote- 1000 mg and seroquil- 150 mg and paxil- 60 mg. I am concerned with long term side effects. He has been on these and he has no short term side effects. The lack of motivation is also a factor. He does go to a psychiatrist and weekly counseling .

In my opinion, it is also important to do role play, cognitive behavioral therapy for social anxiety disorder. Also very important to break out thyroid dysfunction.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
