Hi all, I have been taking SJW for my anxiety for around 10 weeks now. I find that the SJW no longer works for treating my disease. I haven't been able to sleep, my anxiety is back full force, diarrhea, all the good stuff. I wanted to begin taking Xanax but I keep reading the side effects of missing the two. I am wondering how long I will need to be on zero medication for my SJW to wear off so I can safely begin taking Xanax.
Thanks for your help
If you taper off of the herb slowly over a period of about 2 weeks there should be no withdrawals. However if you stop suddenly you will feel strong emotional and physical symptoms. Two weeks it should be out of your system; however, if you experience any withdrawal syndrome go back to the dose you were on and continue tapering after the two weeks. Good luck!
I feel the best route to go for an accurate and safe answer would be the Dr who is prescribing the Xanax for you. Considering all the unique health issues involved with interactions and prescribing medications, that for me is the best source of information in this case. Hope this helps.
