HiWelcome to just answerWhat is your medical question for us?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I suffer with anxiety, am currently not on any medication but was taking sertline. I found I slept too much with these. Is there something I could take in the morning to help me relax and calm down.

You have to get a prescription from your doctor. There is nothing over the counter that will be effective.Another option is cognitive behavioral therapy, which is done by psychologists, to teach you to relax.There are many other natural options as well.Often, anxiety is promoted by a deficient magnesium level. If your level is lower than 2.5, supplementation can help, as can yoga, exercise, getting vitamin D levels to normal, and other maneuvers.See your doctor.
