This answer was rated:

I suffer from social anxiety. This has taken a toll on my memory and confidence/self esteem - I can not quickly recall a word or term and as a result I end up using equivalent word or term while speaking. I have been on beta blocker for past two years for my hypertension which seems to have reduced my social anxiety. But I need something more which can totally relieve of this problem. I am generally a very hard and sincere worker and getting relief from social anxiety could help me achieve higher goals. Please help
