Yes Its a good one . At my worst I took it regularly throughout the day and at night .

You can still drive with it - it takes the edge off the anxiety.

Hi Hermit, I take 3 x 450mg to calm the old nerves and lessen the muscle tension...not quite as good as valium, but at least its safe and non addictive. It doesn't affect my concentration either, but it can make some people sleepy so be careful if you intend driving etc. Try 2 first, it might work for you, if not take a max of 3 and don't take more than 9 in a day...apparently you can't really overdose on them..they're pretty safe, but best to be on the safe side. Don't take my word for it either...put valerian and dosage and stress into google and you can learn for yourself. Good luck, it does work, Dave.
