    Am a CFS sufferer and still able to work ... but suffer the consequences. Does anyone know of a good herb or herbal tablet that you can take during the day to reduce stress / tension?

    The only one I've ever heard of is Kava-Kava, but you probably already know that. I'm not real up-to-speed on the latest herbal treatments. I've never tried it myself but have heard several positive reports.

    Don't know if you're into aromatherapy at all, but Lavender is supposed to be calming.

    Other than that, winning the lottery and quitting your job would be the best bet! LOL

    Take care,

    You can find this at Wild Oats markets or probably any health food type store. You will also find many others. I used this one w/great success before I had my dx of FMS.

    Used to take it before I found out I could take Klonopin in small doses. I think they have it here - check the store and then do a search for valerian.

    Hope you find something that works.
