SJW is a complicated substance that appears to have some dopamine re-uptake inhibition effects, which would likely synergize with the dopamine effects of Wellbutrin. If you are going to try the combo, my advice is to start with VERY low dosages at the beginning to see how your system reacts. Keep in mind that the stuff can pack a surprising whallop for some people (especially atop other meds, I'm sure), and that it takes a very long time to get it fully out of your system (up to several weeks) if and when you decide to discontinue!

I think I'm going to give it a try, there seems to be a lot of growing evidence that St. Johns Wort does not act through MAO inhibition. I checked out a sight called It was extremely helpful and it even mentioned a study were the two were combined. Anyway thanks again and good luck.

In my experience SJW will cause anxiety in some people while in others it will ease anxiety. You might want to consider
trying Kava Kava or the Amino Acid Taurine which is useful in combatting anxious feelings.
