If I start taking Valerian root daily now, how soon will I feel the effects?

I went to the dentist today and he told me that I need to have several teeth pulled and then several cavities filled. If he has time, I really want him to pull all of them at once but I'm already feeling anxiety about this. Dr said he would prescribe me valium but I would rather take something natural and I know it has helped me before.

How fast does Valerian root work? If you take it, how many do you take a day?

  • Ugh, I only tried it once and it had the opposite effect on me. It worked immediately and I was so hyper it took me two days to calm back down.

  • Why would any one use this? I just read up on it. Their is no guarantee. It will work like you want.

  • If I take the Valium, then I have to have someone drive me to and from the appointment. That's next to impossible.

  • Girl, even if you don't take the pill, you are going to need someone to take you to and pick you up, pulling adult teeth isn't like a kid losing a tooth, they are most likely going to give you a bit of gas as well, get a ride, you will be thankful for it.

  • Take the valium. The root knocks you out immediately but the effectiveness wanes--meaning, it won't knock you out after day three or so. I'm sure it depends on each person, but that is what happened to me. Valium is mellow.

  • I couldn't take it. I got nightmares from it.
