abstract

  • AbstractSocial phobia is a common psychiatric disorder that is often associated with significant psychiatric comorbidity and disability. In the past, clinicians have underutilized pharmacotherapy as a treatment option for this disorder. This article provides a review of current pharmacotherapeutic options for social phobia, including a review of the results to date of numerous controlled trials, a description of the recent results of open trials of new and promising agents, and a summary of the information available on the use of pharmacotherapy in the treatment of children and adolescents.
