Nine of 11 patients with social phobia of both the generalized and performance type responded to treatment with clonazepam in total daily doses ranging from 0.75 to 3 mg. Only 2 of these 9 had comorbid panic disorder; the benefit for social phobic symptoms appears independent of clonazepam's putative efficacy for panic disorder.
