> So, according to Dr. Healey, it is okay to take St. John's Wort simultaneously with the Zoloft during the Zoloft withdrawal purpose? (I've always heard not to mix the two). Could someone take the FULL, normally recommended dose of SJW or would they need to take a smaller amt. due to the Zoloft? Lastly, Zoloft withdrawal for me could take a LONG time, as I'd like to go it safe to take the SJW w/ the Zoloft for an extended withdrawal process? Thanks!

The idea is given as almost an afterthought, but it's looks to me like an all-out substitution. An alternative would be to proportionately substitute SJW for the Zoloft, then reduce the dose thereafter.

"There is anecdotal evidence and some theoretical grounds to believe that another option is to substitute St John's Wort for the SSRI. If a dose of 3 tablets of St John's Wort is tolerated instead of the SSRI, this can then be reduced slowly - by one pill per fortnight or even per month."
