> Has any one of you heard about the herb "Hypericum perforatum"?
> It is used to treat mild to moderate depression, anxiety and sleeplessness. It is of course no miracle-pill, but it is an interresting choice to synthetic psychofarmaca, or maybe combine with syntetic psychofarmaca.
> Iīm on Efexor now(4th week, 75mg/d) and if I not respond(havenīt done it yet..) to it, maybe I should try the herb or combine it with a raised dose of efexor?
I would not mix it with any other antidepressant, as the exact machanism through which it works is not known. Seems to use several pathways or neurotransmitters. I run a natural foods store and that is the advice I have read from respected herbalists. Don't try to doctor yourself when you are on regular meds too, without medical advice.
> Anyone who has experiences with this herb?
