I'm not exactly sure how I'd diagnose myself; I haven't been to any doctor or anything because it's far from serious - more annoying than anything else. I think I have some type of anxiety that's more people and speech related, because I'm quite relaxed at all times, but either choose not to or sometimes have difficulty talking to people. Supplements I've tried and/or am using are Rhodiola Rosea (seems to help a bit) Phenibut (remember having very effective experiences with it a while back, but recently got a bulk order of it from NP and have had trouble feeling anything from it, but am steadily increasing dosage when I take it every week) and have used Hydrocodone-APAP (80% of the time when I use a very occasional pill, it reverses my behavior and talking/socializing is very easy and pleasant to do). I use various nootropic supplements like Piracetam, L-Theanine, Alpha-GPC, etc. The Hydrocodone-APAP definetely fixes the problem, but obviously its toxicity and prescription requirement prevent it from being a frequent cure, but if anyone has any suggestions for something that seems like it'd help this "social anxiety" kind of behavior and is safe and pleasant to use, please share.

I can certainly tell you that no doctor will EVER prescribe a narcotic medication for what dounds like a social anxiety issue. If that is indeed the case, there are many different medications that are very effective in controlling this condition. I suggest you see your primary doctor or psychiatrist for a thorough evaluation and treatment. Wouldn't it be better to be treated and not have to face these anxiety issues daily?

For my situation, I'd prefer not to have a medication to fix the problem, even if it does indeed fix the problem. The way I see it, narcotic/prescription type drugs find a use in my life only for the very occasional euphoria or party-drug sort of situation. I wouldn't really want to use a prescription drug for frequent treatment even if it were prescribed to me for a condition I had. I see things like herbs and supplements as a more natural, safe alternative especially since my condition is far from serious. I just don't think it would be all that beneficial to me to get a prescription med and everything because I wouldn't use it often at all so better to avoid side-effects and comedowns/addiction and whatnot. I was looking for suggestions more along the lines of a stack of adaptogens/nootropics/euphoria kinds of supplements that are less heavy than medications, but would still provide significant anxiolytic benefits. As I said before, from my experience so far, Rhodiola Rosea and Phenibut have been the most helpful.

Lemon Balm and Oat Seed Extracts in addition to Rhodiola work very well for me. L-Theanine is another nice one although it is a bit pricey.
Also, try taking about 3-5 grams worth of coral calcium per day.
