I meant that we are very similar but at the same time very different for example gens. Actually we are almost sisters :-)
We also respond similar to drugs but sometimes
we respond very differently. So, there are many variables, parameters.
Hypericum for example is <not> a placebo (jama study). It does definitely many things in the body and there are cases of serotonin syndroms in literature. Hypericum can be a treatment or it cannot be a treatment. I suppose interaction of hypericum can be much more severe than taking a tiny dosage of valium with some grapefruit.
If you think that you have a good doctor always ask him first.
I have to sleep now. Thanks for your interesting discussion.
