Just wondering if anyone has tried St. John's wort? I haven't been diagnosed as severly depressed but have been told that it is general anxiety with some depression. I thought I would try this because zoloft made me have episodes of extreme dread and fear all of a sudden. It also made me think I was going to hurt myself or no hope in site. I have felt a little better the last couple of weeks. I am going to try this and see what happens.
st john's wort was pretty helpful to me (I take xanax for anxiety). I wasnt sure if the st john's was helpful til I got off it and was crying for 2 wks straight. I'm back on zoloft though...no major side effects for me, just weight loss :) .
