New pill to beat shyness

Sunday Mirror, Oct 4, 1998

A PILL to combat shyness is being launched this week and will be available on the NHS.

The drug, which could relieve the symptoms of up to three million chronically- shy people in Britain, is reported to improve the condition within a week in some cases.

Seroxat, which was originally licensed to treat depression, has now been given the go-ahead to fight shyness and "social phobias".

The drug works by increasing the level of serotonin in the brain, and could cost the NHS up to pounds 700 million a year if all the country's shy people took it.
