Long term valerian use?

  1. Hey gc. I currently take valerian daily for mild insomnia and social anxiety. What are the permenent effects? Will this perm cure my problems?
  2. There shouldn't be adverse effects from taking it for long periods... you might get some withdrawal when you go off it, but as long as you're not on it for like 2 years straight I doubt you'll ever see any long-term withdrawal or 'addiction'.

    It won't permanently cure your problems because, like any pharmaceutical it only effects when it's in your system. What it SHOULD do is let you get through this period of insomnia and anxiety, which you will probably grow out of after some time.
