    Has anyone taken St. Johns Wort for depression? If so, did it work and were there any side effects?

    I used to take it and it really helped. Didn't experience any bad side effects either, so I say go for it. :)

    I used it long long ago, but it just wasn't enough... so i moved to stronger effective drugs. And no not really any major side effects compared to prescribed stuff.

    I've heard that it works for some depression. However, one important thing that i've learned recently is that it's very dangerous to take it at the same time you are taking prescription anti-depressants.

    If you are not on any prescription anti-depressants, i would give it a try before getting sucked into the world of prescription meds.

    Are you on any meds now?
