Talk to dr.first: Kava -- might relax you w/o the feelings of sedation, but in some studies was linked to liver problems. If you have liver problems, don't take it w/o discussing with your doctor first. Vit. B and Folic Acid are believed to affect production of neurotransmitters and thus help with anxiety. Valerian -- helps with sleep and is believed to help with anxiety.
