St John’s takes time to build up. So be mindful of that. Might take weeks even. Hope it’s a good brand.

Kava Kava or CBD oil are other options if it doesn’t work for you.

I’m 11 days off meds … no matter what it will hurt and not be easy. Even with supplements. It’s a fight to get to day 15 when it’s suspected to start getting better. Day 3 was the start of hell.

You might have to be careful taking both Zoloft and St John’s wort as both are SSRI’s and you might need to watch out for serotonin toxicity.

As another poster stated – be careful taking saint john’s wort with antidepressants, since wort interferes with A LOT of medications!
