    The only effective drug to date is alprazolam, which of course can not be a permanent solution.

    Promethazine for Social phobia

    I have been taking promethazine-neuraxpharm (drops) for several months and as an emergency medication Tavor Expidet (lorazepam) I should take Promethazine before going to bed in the evening. Only from a dose of 20 drops do I notice slight tiredness. Often I need 30-50 drops until a calming effect occurs. Promethazine is great for falling asleep, but it does not help in situations of anxiety or panic. It calms down when you are alone. I got prescribed Tavor Expidet as an emergency medicine. First, 1mg tablets. These did not work for me, so I increased the dose to 2.5mg. That did not help either. Finally, I have the dose previously increased to 5mg once (which scares me, as this is already a very high dose). There was definitely a feeling of relaxation. Whether this is good in the long run, I can not say at this time. My main problem is that in the presence of other people, my hands start to shake extremely. I can not find any side effects, except for the fatigue in promethazine. The addictiveness of Tavor I can not exist so far, because this has not shown any effect on me.

    Side effects: Fatigue

    Promethazine for Social phobia; Obsessive compulsive disorder; Sleep disorders

    After four months, my third report on Sertraline. Correct statements on effects and side effects can only be made after a longer period of use. After gradual dose increase I take 150 mg daily for about two months. Side effects have significantly reduced after a while. The only side effects that are worth mentioning for me are sleep disorders, which also occurred only after a dose of 100 mg. Previously I was able to sleep well with the Sertralin. For sleeping, therefore, I take promethazine drops (so 20-30 mg daily). I’m fine with this station wagon now. The Sertralin prepares a fairly constant good mood. Thoughts, social fears, fears of expectation and future fears have improved significantly, the distance to the constraints and to the everyday problems has increased. Since it is about the mirror, I do not immediately feel that I take a medi. Sertraline does not quench (on the contrary it causes the sleep disorder) and improves the ability to concentrate. No weight gain.

    Side effects: Sleep disorders
