Maybe: It is possible that valerian root could help, because it has a weak valium-type compound. However, herbal supplements are virtually unregulated, so it's always a crap shoot as to exactly how much of the various compounds are in a given pill.

Pain,visual loss: Pain is usual in the affected eye and is aggravated by eye movement. Visual loss is commonly progressive, though initially it is blurring of vision. This may progress to a field/altitudinal defect. The pupil may be dilated and sluggish to react to light. Loss of visual acuity varies from none to loss of perception of light. Good visual acuity is regained after the initial attack, with exceptions.

There are multiple causes of optic neuritis, it can affect one or both eyes, and the etiologies are somewhat age related. The patient may be aware of a blind spot in the affected eye.
