Lemon Balm is also a good nervine, but if you have hypothyroids, you
don't want to take
it, as it can
have a mild effect on the thyroids if taken very often. (it can
slow down the thyroids in some people--very mildly) You can also get combination herbs at the herbal shops that combine several sedating herbs. Remember the more liquid it is, the faster it works. These are just not the same as taking a valium, or one of the sedatives by prescription, it is more of a subtle effect.
