Fish Oil, Saint Johns Wort Proton Pump Inhibitor

Posted by wild_0ne on January 17, 2003, at 0:35:23

I am curious if anyone is taking St. Johns Wort and having good results, and if they are also taking Fish Oil? Are there any dangers of mixing these and having too much of a seretonin reaction (like seretonin syndrome)? I am taking a good quality SJW called Nature's Way Perika to try and get through this episode (triggered by Testosterone Replacement Therapy gone bad) in order to try and normalize my brain chemistry and I am looking to add in Fish Oil for both short and longer term preventative measures. I live in Canada and was wondering if anyone knows a good, clean, fish oil product available in Canada. I am very wary of taking prescription meds (SSRI's) as I have heard so many horror stories. I have been on SJW for 2 weeks and although it's been pretty up and down, I think in general it is definitely better than when I started. Certainly the lows aren't as severe which is good!

For anyone interested in more info on St. Johns Wort there is a great site here:

Check out the discussion forum - it's very informative.

One other thing - I also have been prescribed a Proton Pump Inhibitor for a Hiatal Hernia, and I was wondering about any problems with taking the fish oil while taking a PPI in particular, as PPI's reduce acid secretion in the stomach. Will this affect the digestion of fish oil? Is anyone else taking PPI and fish oil? Are there any problems?

Sorry for the somewhat long rambling post, but I have a bunch of issues and I'm trying to deal with them and take the least amount of prescriptions possible, so none of the doctors have any answers to my questions as they are generally uninformed when it comes to herbs and more natural treatment options.

Thanks for your help.
