Social anxiety is basically worrying about meeting new people, communicating with them and going into gatherings. The person suffering from this disorder starts to worry about the party and after it is finished they worry more about the situations that happened.
So doctors take the complete case history of the person and then recommend the dose according to the condition of the person.
Most of the time doctors’ commonly recommended dose is 5mg to 30mg which is given in a day or in a week.
