In brief: Don't take it!

People respond differently to herbs ; medicine ; some do have a paradoxical response to valerian.
You can try other natural supps for anxiety including magnesium glcyinate or taurate, ashwagandha, holy basil, passionflower, scullcap, rhodiola ; magnolia bark.However, you should also try meditation, exercise, healthy diet (see http://bit.Ly/19xax7e), counseling and consider eft: http://bit.Ly/kidhwt.
