  • You could try valarian root - but get the root extract. It tastes awful but put it in a little OJ to kill the taste. It's very calming. You should also google Kava kava and other soothing herbal remedies to see what best fits your needs. Remember with birth control to pay attention to what herbs you are using so it doesn't mess up your birth control.

  • I used to give my step son valarian root when he was little for his ADHD. I also use melatonin at night for sleep along with triptophan so that might help you at night. Melatonin rocks as a sleep supplement! Yes maxsmom - I use Native Remedies for my cat (they have pet and people stuff) and I had great success with the stuff I tried.
