Toby, please cite your source for this statement.

As far as I know, there have been NO REPORTS
at all of such a problem with St.John's Wort.
This can and does occur with MAOI's, but even
though an early IN VITRO experiment implied that
SJW might work like an MAOI, I have seen NO
REPORTS of these reactions despite MILLIONS of
users over many years.

Like other AD's, SJW works for some, not for
others. UNLIKE other AD's, it almost never
produces undesirable side-effects.
