St. John's wort has several dozen drug interactions most of which are very dangerous. It can also cause a host of side effects.

St. Johnís wort is LIKELY SAFE for MOST people when taken by mouth short-term.

Like conventional antidepressants, suddenly stopping St. John's wort may cause unpleasant side effects. If you decide to stop taking St. John's wort, reduce the dose slowly over time.

There are special precautions and warnings for:
- Pregnancy and breast-feeding
- Infertility
- ADHD
- Bipolar disorder
- Major depression
- Schizophrenia
- Anesthesia and surgery
- Alzheimer's disease

These are the ingredients in Deproloft but none of them are listed on the website. I am not on any prescription meds so I just took a chance. It's working out well for me.

If I had been on prescription meds, I would have talked to my pharmacist first, then my doctor - I worked for my pharmacist when I was teenager and he, as most pharmacists will, will advise me for free whereas the doctor would charge for a visit.
