I started taking a very low dose of St John's Wort yesterday for depression, it has improved my mood but given me nightmares, headaches and fatigue. Anyone else experience this? Did it subside?
Search; Yes it is common to have a headache for 7 to 10 days when you first start this medication and it well go away. But if you want to just stop it that well be okay too but it may still take a few days to have the headache go away. best of luck
Hi, searching! Although St. John's Wort is a "natural" remedy it can cause the same side effects as commonly prescribed antidepressants:
These side effects usually resolve with a few days to a week or so, but if they continue you should speak with your doctor, pharmacist, or qualified naturopath.
