Too Much Panic Maybe?

625 mg oral Valerian (pill / tablet)


I was having a panic attack, and previously had take 4 valerian pills which at least put me to sleep quickly. Decided to take 5 this time.

At first I felt quite relaxed, but stress soon returned. I was beings spoken to, but wasn't sure what was actually going on. Paranoia was rampant. The last bit I remember was seeing the open mouth of a snake coming at my face- and grabbing at it, and knowing that it wasn't real. I then made myself shut my eyes and sleep, because this wasn't what I had expected to happen.
