Can St. Johns Wort cause a seizure ?

I want to take ST. Johns Wort for my anxiety, and I was wondering if it could cause a seizure... I've taken Paxil, Celexa, and Zoloft, and I never had a seizure, and I dont have history of seizures, or epilepsy in my family.

By the way I been off Zoloft since September 10, 2002... So is it okay for me to take St.Jons wort now ?

Yes I know you cant take St.Johns Wort with SSRI meds or any other type of anti depresents!
