I'm stressed!! - OTC/natural remedies??

Hello Everyone,

I know for a fact I hold stress in. I rarely break down or let things show that they get to me. I always shrug things off. Right now I have a lot of things coming at me from every angle and I am starting to feel tense in my chest. My breathing seems to be fine and when I am doing something I enjoy it seems to all together go away. I used to be a generic form of Xanax about 3 years ago for anxiety and I do not want to be put back on any meds. Especially since that one kept me awake all the time.

So my question is are there are any other OTC or all natural remedies I could try? I heard about something called Sam-e but was not sure how good/safe of a product it is?

St.John's wart is a natural over the counter anxiety and stress reliever and sleep aid.Its effects can vary depending on each individual person. Not sure of the medicinal srength it comes in but lately (under excessive stress) I usually will use 1/2 a capsule when at work .Only when I feel I am getting stressed about something.
