Antidepressants and other kinds of medication such as Beta blockers and SSRI's are used to treat social anxiety and depression. The Anxiety Disorder Association of America warns...

“While medications can be extremely effective in treating the symptoms of anxiety disorders, such as worry, panic attacks, insomnia, and difficulty concentrating, they have notable limitations: 1. Medications might not resolve all of the symptoms of your anxiety disorder. To achieve complete remission of symptoms, which is the goal of any treatment, you may need to make some important changes in your life. You might also benefit from individual or group psychotherapy treatment. 2. Medications will only work if they are taken in the appropriate manner, following the explicit instructions given by your physician."
