St. John's wort/lorazepam should i mix

Does St. Johns wort work as a good positive mood enhancement and would it be ok to take with lorazepam. I would just like to get feed back before i start mixing the two.

Either consult a Drug Book, a pharmacist, or your physician. Some herbs dont mix with meds whether they are "natural" remedies or not. Be on the safe side and find out from a professional--or someone who has a drug book.

Hi, there are lots of things you can't mix St Johns Wart with, and I think antidepressants is the main one. I would definitely ask your doctor first, I think you'll find he'll tell you not to.
