> > > I recently started taking WellbutrinSr for depression and adult ADD. The med has worked great and I am able to concentrate on things at will and it definitely has improved my effeciency at work. However there has been one side effect that is almost intolerable...anxiety. I used to be a prett laid back person but now on the med it has become very bad. So to the point I was thinking of trying St. Johns Wort with it since I heard that it can have anti-anxiety effects. By the way my dose is relatively low. One 150mg tablet in the morning. Does anyone here have any experience with this combo?

> Antidepressants and St. John's Wort are in widespread, mainstream use in this country, with SJW falling off the shelves at places like Wal-Mart and 7-11. My guess is that possible interactions between most of them (MAOI's excluded) and SJW are highly overrestimated and largely theoretical. I wouldn't worry about any serious interactions, especially at a low dosage.


I've read quite a lot on SJW and am considering
a go on it myself. In my past, I've dropped acid, did coke, smoked joints, and drank beer, just like there's nothing to it. The same day.
But until I see some studies done on interactions of certain drugs, well, I am not a guinea pig anymore.
I know how well SJW sells and I am sure there are folks mixing w/ AD's. However when starting Luvox a few months ago, I took an EMS cruise to the ER w/ my pulse and BP going through the roof.
And I wasn't even mixing two drugs.
I'd get off anything for a few weeks before starting SJW.
Of course nothing may happen, but there's all kinds of shit that can happen!
