That's one of the main herbs in Formula 303 and  my (holistic) drs recommended it.

Just don't overdose on it or anything. lol Moderation....

Valerian Root, PassionFlora (Flower), Magnesium Carbonate are the ingredients.

My dr said to take 2 pills every 2 hours until I get relief. I also will take 2-3 at bedtime if it's been really bad during the day.

I've never taken more then 5 pills a day though. (while pregnant)

No more then 8 pills a day (not pregnant) 

I'm not sure what the highest dose would be.....but they do have a "usage plan" on the bottle as well.

Does this work better than just valerian root alone? I used to get panic attacks in college and took valerian root to help but it doesn't seem to help as much anymore

For me it does. Regluar Valerian did nothing....and it wasn't even a quality suppliment. This Formula that I take is pure....not organic though :( If you are new to the herbal thing, the best products are the pharmacopoeial grade. The FDA has to approve them.

I hate the herbal suppliment crap that does not have the correct potency. I have been using holistic meds for years and years when it comes to most of my health needs.....and there IS a huge difference in quality herbs and suppliments. IMO (I've used both.)
