Over-the-Counter Stress Medicine

Stress Affects Everyone

Unfortunately, no one can avoid stress. Whether you're in middle school, college, or in your chosen profession, there will be stress. Unfortunately, we cannot predict life, but we do know that we can't avoid stressful situations.

If you don't want to take a regular medication, whether prescription or an all-natural supplement, you can find things that you can take as needed, which is great, as your stress may not be all the time.

Theanine Serene with Relora and the Nelson Bach Rescue Remedy spray are two of my favorite natural and over-the-counter remedies for stress. They are taken as-needed, so when you feel the stress rising, go ahead and take a pill or spray the rescue remedy. You will notice a calming effect.

Source Naturals Theanine Serene with Relora

This is an awesome over-the-counter medicine that you can use for stress. You don't have to take it on a daily basis if you don't want to. This natural remedy can be used as needed, so when you stress starts to rise, pop a pill.

Theanine gently soothes away tension using L-theanine, a unique amino acid that balances and stimulates you, magnesium, taurine, and valerian. This stress management pill will help promote relaxation and calmness, yet it should not make you drowsy.

You do not want to take more than two pills a day. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, may become pregnant, or taking any anti-depressants such as MAOIs, SSRIs, or anything containing St. John's wort, you want to consult a physician before taking theanine serene.

Nelson Bach USA - Rescue Remedy Spray

This stress management spray is another as-needed medication that you can use when you feel your stress level rising. I have had many people tell me how great this works. I have my spray on order, although, you can purchase it at some local pharmacies.

The spray is made from 38 flower essences to include cherry plum, clematis, impatiens, rock rose, and star of Bethlehem.

You want to try to avoid more than two sprays a day.

Stress Management

When you suffer from stress, you want to pinpoint what is causing your stress. Is it work, school, your spouse, or something specific? You want to look closely at your habits, routines, and even your excuses.

"It's just crazy around here," isn't sufficient when it comes to managing your stress. Stress should not be a norm.

While you're trying to pinpoint your main stresses, you want to avoid any unnecessary stress and alter some of the habits that you've developed that may add stress. You want to try to cut out some of your regular activities, as well as avoid people and situations that stress you out the most. It's also a good idea to just accept change and the idea that you just can't control everything.

Avoid using the following methods to reduce and manage your stress:

  • Drinking alcohol
  • Smoking
  • Eating
  • Sleeping
  • Procrastinating
  • Television
  • Withdrawal
  • Over-stimulation by an excess number of activities

If your stress becomes regular, you may need to seek a professional for assistance in controlling your stress. Also, please keep in mind that depending on what medications and health concerns you may have, you should contact your physician before taking an over-the-counter remedy, even if it is all-natural.
