The supplements that may say they can help with nervousness are not well tested. Speak with a psychiatrist or your primary care physician about medications that are proven to help. You could also start with psychotherapy to learn stress management techniques & if you need meds do that later.

The first thing to do with nervousness is to discover why it's happening, and deal with that. Stop all stimulants, including caffeine.Breathing exercises, mindfulness meditation, and yoga are helpful practices. Depending on what other medications you're taking, some herbal medicines can be safe to try -- such as milky oats which is like nature's xanax (alprazolam). Passion flower, lemon balm, or kava too.
