    Default Experiences with St Johns wort ??

    ladies,

    I was just wondering if anyone has used St johns wort to treat depression/anxiety ? does it work ? are there any side effects ? also, i am on beta blockers for a heart condition, so does anyone know if it's safe for me to take these together ? (obviously i will talk to my GP, just wondering if anyone knew off hand) Thankyou !!

    I have used St. John's wort, it worked well, I can't remember any side affects. But my mood was better

    Do you remember how long it took before you started to feel better ?

    My mum used it a few years ago. She'd suffered severe depression for a long, long time - probably 40 years & decided she was sick of felling numb on meds so started eating healthly, exercising & taking st johns wort.

    It definitely worked for her, she did need to make some other lifestyle changes to get the whole system working.

    I think she took it in conjunction while weaning off her meds - maybe a month or so!

    Good luck xo
