What are natural things to take for anxiety?  I am tapering off Wellbutrin XL 150mg a day that I was on for 1 month for anxiety and panic and it is starting to make me feel worse!

Problem with this formula:  GABA doesn't pass the blood brain barrier when taken orally.  Taurine will; it's the quasi-amino acid that manufactures GABA.  And 5-HTP, as an amino acid metabolite, and possibly theanine, as another quasi amino acid found in green tea, are perhaps better taken apart from food while the valerian and passionflower might work better with food.  Complicated, no?  People just throw these formulas together to make money, but they don't necessarily have a clue how these substances are digested.

Is Kalms a pill or a drink or what??  I heard the drinking chamomille tea helps as well... sadly I have to wait until I am totally weaned off the Wellbutrin (2 more weeks) then 2 weeks after that when the meds are totally out of my system before I can use any herbal things to help....
