I believe xanax is a valuim medication. A natural herbal med that acts similar to valuim is valerian. Valerian is a muscle relaxant and most people use it for sleep. I use it occasionally myself for sleep problems and it works well for me.
The dose is generally 2 capsules before bed, but you could probably use it during the day also. - It's very gentle and I think you could still go about yoru daily activities without drowsiness. As I understand it, it is a very safe herbal supplement.
