How to choose sedatives?

It is best to consult a doctor. If only because in serious cases, a decoction of chamomile and St. John's wort, or Corvalol may be elementary insufficient to obtain a therapeutic effect, and stronger medicines can usually be bought only with a prescription, i.e. neither you, nor maybe friends who are savvy in this matter, will be able to help you.

In addition, even if you had, in theory, the opportunity to buy any sedative without a prescription, if you use them incorrectly, you can seriously harm yourself. Even an experienced doctor can not always give the right advice the first time, so these drugs are taken "under the supervision of a doctor" - just like this, under supervision, so that he understands whether you have any side effects, maybe in your case you need another drug because it will be more effective, etc.

Sedatives are best selected by a doctor after analyzing your complaints and circumstances. Seriously. It is worth starting with the fact that they are of different types and a non-specialist can “not guess” and even harm himself. You can, of course, drink something based on St. John's wort or motherwort or some glycine, but what if your condition needs something that is not available without a prescription? Antidepressants, tranquilizers or strong antipsychotics?

Make an appointment with a therapist, as an option - immediately to a psychiatrist or neurologist. Don't experiment with your own mental health.
