James here.....

Again, in Germany docs perscribe STW often. I've looked at some translated info but the real intresting stuff is in German (which I can read, slowly) but is is taking me some time...being a classical singer you don't find leider that uses German medical terms !

The gist I get from the German info is that SJW
is used for minor depressions and mood problems
and the SSRI, ect are more effective for real major depression. This is good news because there are many out there who function a little less than well; don't need a big gun AD nor are they willing the go thru trial and error to find one that agrees with them.

The animal studies indicate SJW is a weak MAOI and I am looking into any German reports of problems with food reactions.
