Description:

Social phobia (SP), or social anxiety disorder, is a prevalent and disabling disorder. The growing evidence of the disorder's neurobiological basis has stimulated an increased interest in the use of medication in its treatment.

The objective of this review is to assess the effects of pharmacotherapy for social phobia, and to determine whether particular classes of medication are more effective and/or acceptable than others in its treatment.
