I have been on St John's Wort for a month now, and while I do feel slightly less depressed, my anxieties are getiing out of control. My doctor has prescribed me paxil but how long should I wait before taking it as i have stopped taking the St.Johns Wort as of yesterday... is tehre a wait period or can I just start taking the paxil immediately. I will of course not take any more Wort.
As long as you stop the St. John's Wort, you are ok to start the Paxil immediately. It will take upwards of a month to build in your system before you get the full effects of this medication. It will probably help the anxiety alot more than the St John's Wort.
I wish you well, and hang in there until the Paxil has a chance to work,
