I just found out about valerian root and was wondering how much I should be taking ,I wanted kavalactone but can't find it in my local stores.i am suffering horribly from anxiety and depression and i already have a tolerance to oxycodone( 20mg to40mg may miss a day or two )and Xanax (2mg to 4mg a day may miss a day or two) I want to quit all narcotics but am not sure how to use these home remedies safely.i tried one 530mg with 1 1/2 of my sleep aids.i slept very hard woke up with a little headache but got my test so I'm very happy. I usually wake up at least 7×. Can someone please help me get better,i know I can do this because I have a very strong desire to do it.Thank you
