    5 htp or valerian


    Hi,

    For a fear of flying, which would be better to calm the person. 5THP or Valerian or something else

    Valerian. For more serious calming...klonopin or a beta-blocker. If this is for you, as you are in Illinois like me, check out http://www.anxietycoach.com/fear-of-flying-class.html. Even if you don't take the class, check out the free articles on the site. They are great for flying anxiety or simply general anxiety.

    Try 1000-2000 mg of 45% Bacopa Monnieri Extract- the feel is really similar to a low dose of xanax- it will knock down any anxiety you have very quickly

    It does work well with 5-HTP- but this is more from a mood-boosting standpoint. As far as mixing it with other things- I really think it depends- it is an herbal, so there aren't going to be contraindications, like with pharmaceuticals. Really it comes down to trial and error and seeing what works for you, b/c everyone is different....

    We have this in a couple of our products, but not by itself. I think The Vitamin Shoppe and some other places may offer capsules of Bacopa by itself...
