    As of Today

    I started taking it today and am keeping my fingers crossed that it helps with my depression. Even if it only helps a little it'll be worth it. I have heard great things from people who have used it but I'm not going to get my hopes up as I don't want to be disappointed!!

    Peanut Allergy

    The St Johns Wort package says not to take it if you have a peanut allergy even though there aren't any in the ingredients, so I'm guessing it was made in a nut environment - has anyone experienced any allergic reactions?

    St-john's Wort

    When I stopped taking my anti-depressant, I took a few doses of St-John's Wort not to feel the anti-depressant withdrawal. * If a person is on anti-depressant, you cannot take this tea.
