Hi everyone, I just had my initial appointment with a psychologist about a week ago for possible depression/anxiety...honestly not sure exactly what is going yet, have a follow up in 2 weeks. Just know something isn't right. I started taking St. John's Wort 2 days ago. Keeping a log of how I feel everyday to share with the psychologist on the 19th. Has anyone tried this? What was your experience? Thanks! CaraView Thread
Thanks! Not sure if I could stomach the tea so we'll see how this goes. I'm keeping a log of when I take it and how I feel at different times of the day. Honestly, so far I think my mood swings are worse but I'm going to stick with it at least another week to give it a chance.View Thread
While I can't answer the question, I would say make sure the doctor knows his history and also all medications he is on to make sure he is ok to take this. You could also give your pharmacist a call to ask about the combination of drugs.View Thread
