Written by donn saylor | 13/05/2017

For those who suffer from anxiety disorders, the smallest tasks can become unmanageable. There are numerous prescription medications used to treat anxiety, and there are also some lesser-known over-the-counter remedies.


Proloftin is an all-natural, over-the-counter remedy created by Damage Control Master Formula. It contains five anxiety- and stress-lessening ingredients, which work together to calm the body and mind.


The amino acid L-Theanine has been shown to greatly reduce anxiety and stress levels. It also does not make users drowsy or sleepy.


GABA is an amino acid that boosts the brain's natural calming abilities. GABA supplements, when taken sublingually, provide a quick antidote to anxiety.


Kava extract is another over-the-counter option for those dealing with anxiety. Kava should only be taken in small doses for a short period of time, however, as long-term use has been linked to liver problems.

Rescue Remedy

Bach's Rescue Remedy is a liquid mixture of flower essences and other herbal extractions. A few drops on the tongue can provide instant relief for anxiety and stress.
