Anyone tried St Johns Wort for anxiety? Did you get any side effects?
My main concern is that I have read it can cause heart palpitations and well for someone with panic disorder that is my greatest fear. And I really don't want to end up in emergency. (again)
Did it help with your anxiety at all?

St Johns wort for anxiety/panic attacks/and all the rest of it?

Hi I suffer from GAD & depression & i didn't want to take meds & so i tried St Johns Wort, after a week i noticed a small change but it didn't help much (was on it for about a month) I think it depends on how severe your anxiety/depression is. Mine is pretty bad, so i ended up taking meds & seeing a therapist which has helped dramatically. I didn't have any side effects from st johns wort & haven't heard of anyone having any & i also have a heart condition so i was worried about side effects as well.
It does say though that st johns wort are as effective as prescribed AD. I have friend who had pretty bad anxiety & she's been on them for almost a year now & she swears by it - prescription AD didn't work for her, so i guess it depends on the individual.
I would say give them a go - good luck
