    Question ST JOHNs WORT.


    I am taking St Johns Wort for mild depression. Does anyone know if it interacts with testosterone boosters, particularly Triazole, Act Xtreme and DAA?

    St. Johns Wort is notorious for its contraindications. Your safest bet is to check with a pharmacist. Most of the time, it's contraindications are with MAO inhibitors, but it's still worth asking a professional about. You don't want to be the guy who's in the ER because he took too many supps. That's never pretty.

    Alpha Mind is right, SJW can have some contraindications- but I think you will be ok if you take it with any of those test boosters. Interestingly enough, some recent studies have actually shown that SJW can increase GH levels......

    A better option may be 5-HTP- try 100 mg eod, it can really help with serotonin levels
