Hello
Thanks for your query. It is not possible to exactly point the content of drug with your description. However it is most likely to be a benzodiazepine sedative which has anti anxiety properties. I would strongly recommend against over the counter medication for anxiety. Drugs like sedatives are habit forming and life threatening in relation to overdosage. I would suggest you undergo a thorough psychiatric evaluation for anxiety symptoms. The treatment for anxiety disorders consist of
1. Anti anxiety medication like SSRIs
2. Psychotherapy techniques like CBT or Cognitive behavioral therapy
Yoga meditation and breathing relaxation exercises are likely to be beneficial. Wish you good health and early recovery.
