  2. My husband suffered from panic or anxiety attacks for 17 years.
    The doctors tried everything… Zoloft, Xanax, Tranzene, and more. He also tried herbal remedies.

    He finally stopped having attacks when he learned proper meditation techniques, and the doctor prescribed 10 mg of Paxel as needed. He also cut down on caffeine- coffee, tea, Coca Cola.

    After a year, he was able to stop taking Paxel. He continues to meditate, and allows himself coffee.

    Just a thought…

    Good Luck


  3. There are numerous herbs which could help but anxiety attacks can be caused by many factors which should be investigated by a medical herbalist who will find, and treat, the cause.

    To relieve your symptoms, take Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora) and Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) which you should be able to buy in tincture from from your health food shop. You will see improvements within a couple of days but should take for several weeks to build up the nervous system. If you are taking lots of other medication, see a Herbalist before taking anything.

    Best wishes,

    PS A lot of the complexes containing Valerian also contain hops [Humulus lupulus] which should be avoided if there is any suggestion of depression – find a tincture of only Valerian.
