Hello, I have suffered from social anxiety/shyness my whole life and have been taking citalopram and clonazepam to help with this issue. The citalopram does not do much, and although the clonazepam helps, i only use it occasionally for fear of dependence. Recently I injured my foot, and was prescribed tramadol 50mg for the pain. Of course I experimented with the dosages and have found that between 150-200mg I feel great, no anxiety,just a great overall feeling of well-being, mood lift,and a desire to socialize and talk with people. Its unlike any other drug I have tried except for alcohol in helping my social anxiety. Although this effect decreases over time, after a few days without using the effects are the same. I am not sure if it is wise to continue using tramadol for this purpose? I do find some nausea that happens after using for 2-3 days in a row, but do not know of any other drug I can use that helps me as much as the tramadol.
