5-htp/ltheanine versus st. Johns wort

Posted by tapioca11 on April 25, 2008, at 8:44:12

I have a history of dysthimia and borderline personality traits...I've recently come off of 100mg Zoloft and have been having a lot of withdrawal symptoms to include the electric shock feeling (yuck!). So, I've been doing a lot of research and I have figured that 5-HTP and/or stJohn's Wort might be the best fit for me. I went to GNC last night and purchased a 5-HTP/L-theanine combo among a few other things (by lucinda bassett)..anyway I felt pretty good last night and ok today..fell asleep real early last night though. So, a lot of the online info says that you shouldn't stay on these meds for an extended period of time. I was thinking that I'd take a break for a week a month and in its place take the st Johns Wort...what do you guys think? I've heard a lot of people not recommending the SJW...not sure why...i'm only taking birth control and synthroid, so besides the decreased effectiveness of the birth control I think i'll be ok. Please let me know what you think of taking these meds for this purpose...thanks!
