I was on SJW for 4 years and have recently re-started it. I'm in my 5th week and although my primary diagnosis is panic disorder and agoraphobia I feel less guilt, shame and remorse about my disorder and believe it's the SJW. There are NO side effects to SJW, except for photosensitivity which frankly I never noticed (primarily effects those who are very fair and sunburn easily). It does reduce the effectiveness of birth control pills so you may need to consider that. SJW works well for mild - moderate, but not severe depression or bi-polar disorder.
