Treatment of social anxiety disorder with citalopram.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are used as treatment for generalized and specific social phobias (social anxiety disorders). The efficacy of citalopram, an SSRI, for the treatment of social anxiety disorders has not yet been fully evaluated. These cases suggest that citalopram may be an effective treatment for social anxiety disorder (social phobia). These cases are consistent with two other published reports with citalopram from outside the US. Randomized controlled studies are warranted.
