Advice & Tips: This remedy helped when I was having emotional, anxious moods while at work or social situations for a few years. As my symptoms worsened and I became suicidal and deeply depressed, it became clear that this remedy was not strong enough. Still, it did help up until that point and is easy to take. It is also safe to give to anxious or overstimulated children -- it calms them almost immediately.
Cost: < $25 monthly
