Valerian does not make you sleepy until you take high doses. 1000mg is a moderate amount for anti-anxiety. I've found Valerian to suit my needs at doses that fit me personally, and I've tried prescription anti-anxiety and insomnia medications.
I'd try a propriety mix of Valerian, Hops, and Skullcap.
I with hesitation offer Kava Kava (although many say it is undue. personally, I take it in moderation). It is legal in the states, but due to studies at high doses during long durations that showed liver toxicity, it was taken off the shelves in a few UK countries. However, recent reports seem to paint the picture that the tests were irrelevant because the dose and duration administered was unrealistically high, and that any amount of anything at such high doses will cause serious problems.
That said, Kava Kava is extremely effective in administrating calm. It will not cause sleepiness. If you try 2-3 bags of tea, it will really calm you for hours (first hour the most).
