Like millions of people diagnosed with clinical depression, I have spent decades taking psychiatric prescription medications. While these medications initially proved very effective in treating my disorder, over time they became ineffective in treating my depression and began to produce crippling, negative side-effects. As I weaned myself off of the prescription anti-depressants, I sought an herbal alternative to help me deal with life-stress. My personal experiences with St John's Wort have been remarkable. Within days of starting this therapy, I began to feel better than I have in months! I don't expect everyone to enjoy the same dramatic benefits, but I stronglhy encourage all depression sufferes to try this age-old remedy. Don't be surprised if your psychaitrist advises against this therapy. Psychiatrists often eschew natural treatments in favor of prescriptions. Don't let this deter you. Youn owe it to yourself to feel the sense of well-being that St John's Wort cna provide. I will update this review as I continue to use the product.
I have trouble falling and staying asleep because of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. In both of these conditions, serotonin is in short supply, a vital brain chemical that is required for sleep. St Johns Wort (SJW) is a natural "selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor" (SSRI) which means that it slows down the recycling of serotonin and makes more of it available for the brain. Taking 450-750 mg SJW at bedtime gives me a very restful sleep without the hangover feeling of a typical drug. And this product by Source Naturals gives me a standardized amount so that I don't get too much or too little. Good luck!

I used before the "now" brand but didn't fill anything. this one gives me slightly headache and make me anxious. I take it with ssri so it may be the problem. anyway 3 stars for something that really work(most of the things here do nothing) maybe it will help you.

A close relative has been using this for over 5 years and has tried at least 15 other brands. This was recommended by a Pharmacist. Works very well, for the mild to medium depression. FYI In clinical trials up to 2400mg has been used. You can start with 2 450 mg. in the AM and if you need more, add 1- 450mg. about 3:pm. Not later, or you may not sleep or you could become too sleepy. Have recommended to other friends as well and they have had very good results. You must be patient and kind to yourself, depression is hard to deal with. This isn't 100% but very close. Be patient, it takes time to kick in and take all year through. Light boxes, good nutrition, enough sleep 7-8 hrs. at least, and light to medium exercises also helps with the St. Johns Wort. This is an excellent quality herb. Very good luck.
Ah, now Im feeling better

highly recommend this product. helped me beat off my depression with the help of SAMe and my prescription zoloft. warning though, when i first started this, my depression seemed to get slightly worse for a few days before it finally kicked in.
