    St. Johns Wort


    Anyone taken this? I hear its supposed to be like a week SSRI, with less sides. Now SSRI's do have side effects, so Im wondering if this week ne has week but similar sides?

    Personally I do not respond well to St John's Wort at all, I much prefer rx SSRIs. Try it out for 8 weeks or so and see if it works, it might work well for you.

    st johnns worts works in spurts for me. I can't just set a dose and take it everyday and have that feeling every single day. I can take it for a week and feel good for a week or few days at best, but then I need to give it up for a bit and cycle off before I can achieve the feeling again.

    It's mostly just a calm relaxing stress relieving type of feeling.

    It made my anxiety worse. If you just have seasonal affective disorder make sure you are getting at least 4,000iu of vitamin D3 a day. That should take care of most of the symptoms.

    There are some other nootropics and other good stuff you can try too if that doesn't help.
