Q. Is Nytol Effective and Safe? I have been under excessive stress for the past few days mainly because of my new office. I find the working conditions quite hostile mainly because I have a social anxiety disorder. I do have an individual cabin where I am isolated from others, but it is the break hours that I dread when people get together. I feel completely out of place and often times the butt of all jokes. These thoughts keep hovering in my mind all the time. I am not able to sleep and my mind keeps churning out negative thoughts all night long. Because of this my productivity at work has reduced a lot. Is there any way I can stop my mind from thinking when I go to bed?
