Medications and Supplements
One approach on how to cure glossophobia or fear of public speaking is through medications and supplements.
Beta blocking drugs counteract the flood of adrenaline in the body, and help people relax before speaking in public. Examples of such drugs include "Bravina," touted as “the speech pill," “SocialFear Relief,"a homeopathic remedy, Confidrex, Xanax, Zoloft, Celexa, Valium and Paxil and others.
Certain natural products serve as effective tranquilizers and antidepressants, providing temporary relief from anxiety and stage fright. Examples of natural supplements used as tranquilizers include kava, chamomile, valerian root, and passionflower. Examples of natural supplements used as antidepressants include St. John’s wort, tryptophan and tyrosine.
Such drugs and supplements can however cause harmful side effects, leading to drowsiness and impaired motor functions among other states. The authenticity of the claims of such drugs to remove stage fright is not conclusive, and medication should be taken only with the approval of a registered medical practitioner.
