Does St. John's Wart help?

Hello. I was wondering if anyone here has taken St. John's Wart for depression, and if it has helped. Also, is there any side effects like weight gain, tiredness or anything else. Thanx!

didn't help me so i had to resort to perscription meds. it is just placebo stuff but if you think it works than it probably will...it might be hard to think that now that i've told you it doesn't work but i wish u the best of luck...i got off the meds about 7 months ago and am doing well

Re: Does St. John's Wart help?

MIchelle1970,

Just wanted to input regarding the St. Johns. It works well for me. I take it with 5-htp. 5-HTP can be found at your local vitamin store. Take one at night as it makes you kind of sleepy and the St. Johns in the morning. Look for the St. John that is the stongest. Compared to the anti-depressants on the market, this is the most natural with out the freaky side effects. Google 5-Htp and St.John and read up on how the two work together. It takes a little while for them to work, but I swear by them... Good luck.
