Agree w Dr. Ali.: Passion Flower, Lemon Balm, Humulus lupulus (Hops) Valerian & Chamomile may help with anxiety. Although Kava Kava may help it has potential to cause liver damage. Lavender & chamomile essential oils (not ingested) are also calming.

Get evaluation 1st: With anxiety and panic attacks, it's best to get evaluated before medicating yourself. You want to make sure your general health is good and no other conditions are contributing to your symptoms. Medications like ssri's can prevent panic attacks and calm anxiety. Also psychotherapy can help a lot, and may be even longer lasting. Your doctor, a psychiatrist, and psychotherapist can help you.
