What are some over-the-counter drugs (or herbal medicine) that can be taken to treat severe anxiety until I can get some health insurance?

I'm looking for something to treat my (severe) social anxiety until I can get a job and health insurance. I don't care if it's a drug (the legal kind, that is), or if it's herbal. All that matters to me is that it's effective, over-the-counter, affordable, and preferably lacking in any weird and/or severe side effects.
I had heard about something called "Kava", so I looked it up on Wikipedia, but was greatly turned off after reading the risks. If anyone has had any experience using this, I'd like to hear about it.
If it matters, I live in the United States, and am not allergic to anything (as far as I know).
