Is there any herbal medications in tablet form for insomnia that actually work.  and which will help anxiety too. ?

Yes, but capsules: By asking about tablet form I'm guessing you want a pill as opposed to a tea or tincture but herbs are more likely to be in capsules than tablets. Many herbs are well-known to help insomnia & anxiety, including Valerian, Passion Flower, Hops, California Poppy, Chamomile, Ashwagandha, Magnolia Bark & Holy Basil.
