Philippians 4:6 tells us, "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God." Instead of diazepam (Valium) or amitriptyline (Elavil), try Grandma's suggestion. (Disclaimer: Grandma is smart, but she not a medical doctor. Use wisdom.)
Valerian Root Extract or Tea relaxes the body and promotes calmness. However, it can cause nausea in some people. This usually goes away after the first day or so. If the nausea continues, discontinue use.
Do NOT use Valerian Root Extract or Tea if you are taking diazepam (Valium) or amitriptyline (Elavil).
Do NOT use Valerian Root Extract or Tea with alcohol. Doing so increases sleepiness.
