No, Hadley, I've never taken St. John's Wort, but I can tell you that
St. Johns Wort has been declared ineffective as a treatment for depression.

See "Effectiveness of Complementary and Self-help Treatments for Depression" by John H. Christensen and K. M. Griffiths.

1 in 4 people experiences clinical depression in their lives, so you may
enjoy visiting with this group. Despite their depression, they have a
very positive outlook and hope for improved view of life. Medications
are a large part of the solution, and psychiatric care is effective as are exercise and cognitive behavioral therapy (in manuals, available on the
net).

I hope you will find the improvement that works best for you soon.

Best wishes,

It's Genetic

Hi HADLEY,

Welcome to the depression forum. I am sorry you have side effects with St. Johnswort. I hope that you find what is right for you. I would talk to a natural doctor and see about 5htp if you don't want to go the medication route.

Hugs, Karen
