Basic Information: What is ‘Anxiety Relief’
Anxiety Relief is a homeopathic remedy that aims to relieve the symptoms of anxiety including restlessness and stress and improving your focus and confidence.
Take 7-10 globules as needed up to every half hour. It is best to let the globules dissolve in your mouth.
Before taking this medicine
This product contains two active ingredients. It contains Argentum nitricum which is said to relieve anxiety, apprehension and nervousness. This product also contains Strophanthus gratus which is suggested to relieve nervousness and palpitations.
The price is around $10.99 when you buy it online however, you are not able to buy directly from the manufacturer.
What to Expect
This is a short term solution for immediate situations like stage fright or apprehension before an assessment. There is no mention of use of this product long term to help with chronic anxiety and stress.
Many reviews suggest that there are no adverse side effects but several people note that this feels more like a placebo effect for minor anxieties.
Keep an Eye Out
Before taking this medicine you should note that the product may initially make your symptoms and anxiety worse. If it continues to get worse or persists for more than 72 hours make sure you consult your medical physician.
Strophanthus, one of two active ingredients in Anxiety Relief has been deemed mostly unsafe for use without the direct supervision of a healthcare professional. It is unsafe to use Strophanthus if you are pregnant because it could make the uterus contract and cause a miscarriage. Stropthanthus contains chemicals that stimulate the heart and many people take it for heart problems like high blood pressure though it is also used as an arrow poison in Africa.
Always ask the opinion of a health professional before use especially if pregnant or breastfeeding.

The Bottom Line
Anxiety Relief is a short term solution – not for those who are wishing to relieve their chronic anxiety issues or long term manifestations of a stressful life. Similasan USA does not note the dangers of one of the active ingredients, Stropthanthus, which should almost certainly be kept away from any woman who might be pregnant.
