I'm studying Chinese medicine on my own and I've noticed that TCM Kidney tonics tend to be good for anxiety. Research tends to show them as dopaminergic or adrenaline boosting.
The Chinese rarely give an herb in single dosage form. Usually there are compatible pairs which address the main complaint and then other herb pairs are added to combat side effects and direct the herb to the proper location. Sometimes minerals are added as well.
Chinese Quince is called "Mu gua" - if you google that term and look at formulas which contain it you may be able to find something which would be less of a problem for you. Don't be put off by the language they use, it may sound simplistic, primitive or backwards, but it is very powerful medicine. It is best used as intended rather than extracted singly.
I have learned some lessons regarding herbs the hard way.
