What is a good, healthy alternative to Benzos? I need something against anxiety.

gabapentin has worked tremendously for my anxiety, it's similar to pregabalin or phenibut but it's less addictive and less bad withdrawals. youll only really need to take 300-600mg and youre set

if you go the antihistamine route hydroxyzine is probably better it'll give you less alzheimers

Natural anxiolytics include rosmarinic acid (from lemon balm), baicalin, wogonin and baicalein (from skullcaps) and kava kava with its kavalactones. You can find them online, either pure or as extracts from the plants and they're quite efficient at stopping anxiety. They're no fun at all compared to benzos, you can't get high on them, not even on Kava Kava, no matter what some say and no matter how much you take (especially if you have a tolerance to benzos) but they're also Not addictive. I personally really like 'em, I have anxiety and they make feel much better in any context.
There's also passion flower which contain MAOI betacarbolines that do wonders for me personally even though ironically enough they are antagonists at GABA receptors. I don't take passion flower often though because, while it works during the day, it won't let me sleep at night.
Other natural substances with anxiolytic properties are L-theanine and 5-HTP.
Have fun trying any of these or a combination of them and see what works best for you.

Great if you can get ahold of it.
Holy fucking shit seconding this. You'll go from being off your ass from 600-900 to plowing down 4k in like a week just to get somewhere.

Thanks for the recommendations so far.
I even found some Gabapentin at home. I will give it a try soon.

Do you also have experience with CBD oil?

I ordered these 3 myself. Apparently, they are great at reversing damage done to the GABA receptors.

I've tried CBD oil. It is effective for anxiety but it doesn't last long, meaning you can't use it for many days in a row before it stops doing what it does. CBD is the one that made be myself the most in a social context when I initially used it. I can't tell you which is more efficient, it's up to you to try and see what works best for you. You can also alternate them, use one thing on monday, another thing on tuesday and so on.

Cannabis, psychedelics, low doses of MDMA (very low, when you need them), arguably the gabapentinoids gabapentin and pregabalin when you need them, SSRIs, beta-blockers, and antipsychotics could also help.

I suggest you talk to your doctor, they could prescribe a multitude of substances that don't have the addictive potential and/or such a severe withdrawal syndrome. Even still, if medically supervised I image even tapering off benzodiazepines could be managed with little discomfort.
