    Side Effects of St John's Wort?

    Hi all, I've been trying 900mg of st john's wort a day to help w/ my depression and anxiety for about 3 weeks now. what i've noticed is that in about the same time my attpetite has really decreased where I have to force myself to eat (although I'm less active now, job hunting so that my have some bearings as well) how long does some of the positive benefits of the herb take usually?

    I've also noticed that my anixety gets real bad in the am right after i wake up lately. could this be a side effect as well?

    has anyone tried amoryn or seredyn, two herbal products reported to have better outcomes than st john's wort?

    how are people's responses to st john's wort as opposed to 5-HTP supplement? I assume you should not take both at the same time?
