It’s not a driving test but something similar and I need to be calm and clear headed ? Do those tablets like Kalms work - getting very tearful and anxious which isn’t like me but this means a lot to me

Polo mints help clarity of thought/alertness, eg my ds' driving instructor recommends them.

Not sure about kalms ...

Rescue remedy works well for me. Comes in drops or pastilles

When is it?

I take St John's Wort for my anxiety and depression symptoms which for me includes being teary. It's not a quick fix though.

Rescue Remedy might help, but didn't do much for me.

When I took my driving test (I was very nervous and had failed twice), someone recommended half a banana and a shot of Rescue Remedy. Might be nonsense but if heard bananas have calming properties. Whether it was the placebo effect or not, I passed! 😊

I actually think I heard about having a banana !! I love them so that’s good

thanks so much to you all

I've tried loads of things for anxiety and Kalms are really the best for me. They work and no side effects that I get with propranolol and CBD. They don't make you feel spaced out just really really calm.
