You are really going to need to see a doctor about this one as there are two very different medical treatments that are appropriate. Given that you are relatively young they may choose to use an SSRI like Effexor rather than benzodiazepines like Valium, Xanax or Clonazepam which are habit forming. The third option is cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) which has outstanding results with some people.
I wish you the very best as social anxiety is the absolute pits.
Take care, Steve
Also just what Steve has said but I missed where you put the medication name and this is a side effect of effexor should go away but the area it is in I would call the doctor as soon as possible just to make sure you have many good years going for you. Thanks Steve.
sorry for budding in Chuck1957 aka Chuck
