Our expert says:
YOu seem to be describing feeling seriously anxious specifically when you need to drive on the roads, rather than broader, generalized anxiety not related to this particular stressor ?
This sort of situation usually responds very well indeed to expert psychological treatment in not many sessions of Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ( CBT ). There are NO useful drugs you an get over the counter ( and the far too many sedatives you can buy over the counter could be dangerous by seriously interfering with your ability to drive safely. )
There are some medications a psychiatrist might use, including sedatives ( but those have the same problem with driving, causing impairment like drinking alcohol ) or drugs also used to treat depression, which might be safer but take a bit longer to show their benefits.
