Can pilot fly with social anxiety disorder?

Question by .: Can pilot fly with social anxiety disorder?
I think I might have social anxiety disorder. I’ve tried cognitive and exposure therapy and nothing seems to be working. I was thinking of going to see a psychiatrist and see if I need medication. Now, I’m in college working on my instrument rating and I’m trying to become an airline pilot. Now, if I get medication it will most likely be an anti-depressant like Zoloft. I can’t stand not having any friends in college. I’m a sophomore and it’s just not fair. I have a second class medical and only a little while ago, I thought about medication. I want to be an airline pilot and have fun college life at the same time. I read a few articles saying in April 2010 they allow pilots to take antidepressants like Zoloft. I plan on contacting an AME but I’m just confused. I don’t even know if I need it yet. It’s not like I have schizophrenia or dissociative identity disorder. I just get very anxious in social situations.

Best answer:

Answer by Kara
Agoraphobia (from Greek ?????, “marketplace”; and ?????/?????, -phobia) is an anxiety disorder characterized by anxiety in situations where the sufferer perceives the environment as being difficult to escape or get help. These situations include, but are not limited to, wide-open spaces, as well as uncontrollable social situations such as may be met in shopping malls, airports, and on bridges. Agoraphobia is defined within the DSM-IV TR as a subset of panic disorder, involving the fear of incurring a panic attack in those environments.[1] The sufferer may go to great lengths to avoid those situations, in severe cases becoming unable to leave their home or safe haven.

Can Vicoden treat Anxiety disorder?

Question by Mylee: Can Vicoden treat Anxiety disorder?
I have very severe anxiety disorder, and have been put on anti anxiety meds but they put me in such a fogg I can’t function!
I recently injured my neck and was prescribed vicoden. When I took it, I found it didn’t put me in a fogg and it made me calm.
I do realize it is addictive, and I am not one to abuse medication by any means.
But I strongly feel that the vicoden is a better alternative.
So I’m wondering, is vicoden also used to treat anxiety?
Thanks for the non-judgmental answers :)

Question by karen: What is the difference between acute stress disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder?

Best answer:

Answer by wishnuwelltoo
By definition, acute stress disorder is the result of a traumatic event in which the person experiences or witnesses an event that causes the victim/witness to experience extreme, disturbing or unexpected fear, stress, (and sometimes pain) and that involves or threatens serious injury, perceived serious injury (usually to someone else), or death. Acute stress reaction is a variation of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and is the mind’s and body’s response to feelings (both perceived and real) of intense helplessness.

PTSD is a less frequent and more enduring consequence of psychological trauma than the more frequently seen acute stress response. PTSD has also been recognized in the past as railway spine, stress syndrome, shell shock, battle fatigue, traumatic war neurosis, or post-traumatic stress syndrome.
