St. John's Wort for Fibro

Has anyone ever tried St. John's wort for fibro pain and if so did it work and how much did you have to take per day?

Thanks,
Blingblinglady

Don't use St. John's Wort for this purpose. Try White Willow bark. If you also have morning stiffness and joint pain, try Boswellia.

Oh! I've never heard of Boswellia. Is it difficult to find?

Vitamin Cottage should have it, or an internet search will provide a source.
