CBT trumps medications for social anxiety
from Medscape (free subscription)
Individual cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) may be more effective than pharmacotherapy for treating adult patients with social anxiety disorder, and it has fewer side effects and may be more cost-effective over the long run, new research suggests. A meta-analysis of 101 trials with more than 13,000 participants with the disorder showed that individual CBT had the largest effect sizes and "should be regarded as the best intervention for initial treatment," write the investigators.
