Has anybody tried herbal pills for anxiety? I don't want to take benzos again, I had in the past and got addicted, I developed a tolerance. Plus now I'm seeing a psychologist, not a psychiatrist... I tried some pills with natural extracts, which worked better than I thought, but they didn't do what I wanted them to do. Instead of making me less anxious, they made me very sleepy. I was still anxious but I could sleep right away. Is there any natural thing I could take that reduces anxiety without putting you to sleep?
