Default Best over-the-counter anxiety remedy?

I really need to start taking something for anxiety. I can't keep bumming Xanax off my mother. And until I can get some kind of psych appointment set up, there's no way I'll be able to get my own prescription anytime soon. So I need something that is over-the-counter, and really works for anxiety.

I've tried St. John's before, but it did nothing for the anxiety. It helped with my depression a little, but then the placebo effect must have stopped working, because after a few months that didn't work either.

Any input that can be given, I would appreciate. Thanks.

Here is waht I take for my axiety

1 5-HTP pill in the morning with a B-Complex bill
1 5-htp pill before bed time

I feel I had a seretonin deficiancy so this helped a lot. I have much less axiety and elevated mood and energy levels.

I like this as well, and a multi vitamin, a choline everyother day.

Seems like everyone has their different methods. B-vitamins have never really worked for me. While under mild stress, kava, valerian, magnesium was great. While under severe stress phenibut worked the best but it no longer works well anymore.. i'm trying tryptophan right now. 3rd day.. too soon to really tell.

I just take B-vitamins now. It hasn't been a week yet, so I don't know how well it's working.
