Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. I am sorry that you are having this difficulty with your anxiety/stress, unfortunately this is not an online pharmacy so no prescriptions can be written for you here as I have seen you mentioned your use of Xanax. If you mistakenly thought that a prescription for Xanax can be written for you on this website it is understandable and you can contact customer service regarding a refund. But if you want ideas of natural supplements that you can use to lessen your anxiety please let me know, although the natural supplements will not be as nearly as effective as Xanax.

What are natural remedies for this? I am sick of feeling this way.
Mental Health Professional: Dr. Z, Psychologist replied 2 years ago

The most effective natural supplements would be a combination of Valerian Root and Picamilon. If Valerian Root does not work than you can switch it out for either Passion Flower or KAVA. Valerian Root is so common I imagine you can purchase it at the grocery store, but the other supplements you would need to go to a Health Food Store, Vitamin Shop, or purchase it online (e.g. Amazon). They are effective in lessening mild to moderate anxiety, but for severe anxiety you would need to talk to your doctor about a prescription medication.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
