Just wanted to confirm another situation of the Paxil+St Johns sedation Toby mentioned. I had been on St Johns for a few weeks, didn't think it was enough, added 10mg of leftover Paxil. I became so intensely sedated I had to pull off the road every 5 minutes to konk out. A drunk driver probably would have been safer, except at least I had the intact judegement to pull over. Went to bed at 5pm, woke at 10am next morning, and was still heavily sedated. St Johns with Zoloft was different, sort of a butterflies-in-the-stomach nervous feeling. Now with Prozac it seems neutral, kind of like a vitamin. I wonder why I keep trying it all, except I guess I have that instinctive desire for something "natural" to work. Anyway, the point of my post here is to agree with Toby that all ingredients of treatment, whether natural or prescription, deserve respect, caution, and responsibility. I heard a saying once, "There are no safe drugs, only safe doses". Sometimes even the tiniest dose isn't safe. You just never know. JohnL.
