If you are experiencing symptoms of anxiety and/or depression, it is strongly recommended that you consult FIRST with a psychiatrist to receive a thorough evaluation and plan to best assist you.

Side effects also occur with natural supplements. Be sure you read all warning labels and documentation and consult a physician in Houston before trying any natural anxiety relief supplement in your diet.
