    I remember reading the side effects on a pack of St Johns Wort I came across in an old medicine cabinet once when looking for something for a flu and thinking it was almost comedic. I have never used them, I think it might have frightened me off a little .........

    @Large Donner To summarize the directions, they could have saved a lot of time and effort using one word.

    Possibly! :lol:

    Thanks to @charles shepherd

    This is a herbal remedy that I would NOT recommend as an option for managing mental health problems.
