Stress & Anxiety

Since I was young i suffered from lactose intolerance and digestive issues including anxiety and stress. I do watch what I eat so it won't affect my stomach reaction. But lately i started working in a stressful job and i go to the restroom frequently especially after lunch because of gas and digestive issues such as constipation.
Also, recently had a laser eye surgery and was given 2 Valium to calm my anxiety since i did get nervous about the procedure; which was on a Friday. Then went back to work on Monday and throughout the week I noticed a big change which I felt less stressed/anxious and didn't go to the restroom a lot like I used to.
I read online that Valium can stay in your blood system for days and that anxiety or stress can cause digestive discomfort.
I am interested in purchasing a medication similar to Valium since I know it can be addicting. Or something generic over the counter. Is there any medication similar to Valium that can help in my situation?
