Thanks but are they as neurotoxic?

In reply to Re: Can you mix SAMe with 5HTP with St Johns Wort..., posted by blackjack on June 17, 2001, at 14:52:17

Do they produce the withdrawal symptoms as the chemical prescription drugs? Do they produce the possible permanent brain damage like the chemicals? Do they produce the permanent long-term effects like the chemicals? Simply, are they as toxic as the chemicals? Is there a possibility that their side effects might linger forever?

I already know the answer to my questions is a resounding, "No". Which is the "natural" choice here? Thanks but I prefer the natural route. :-)

Do you agree?

> Just to be clear, you do understand that St Johnswort and most of these others ARE drugs, right? They just happen to either be drugs found in plants, or drugs which occur naturally in foods. If they have any beneficial effect, it is because they are modulating your neurochemistry, just like prescrption drugs. They are not "safer" simply because they are natural. Opium is natural. So is hemlock. They may manifest less side-effects, but that is usually because they are less potent.
> Sorry, I realize I didn't really answer your question, but I wanted to make sure you had the right perspective, since you seem so opposed to taking "drugs."
> As far as combining these things goes, well, there has been precious little good research on these remedies, so I don't think anybody can say for sure.
