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?
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.
