How it works
Investigation continues to determine how St Johnís Wort works physiologically, and several mechanisms of action have been proposed. Although no single constituent of the plant can be considered to be responsible for the therapeutic action of the herb, hypericin (an oil-soluble anthraquinone glycoside) is considered to be an integral part of its action. The clinical studies showing that St Johnís Wort is an effective treatment for low mood or despondency, used an extract of the leaves, stems and flowers standardised to contain 0.33% of hypericin.

If symptoms persist, see your healthcare professional. Seek the advice of your healthcare professional before use in pregnancy. Always read the label. Use only as directed.

Side Effects May rarely cause photosensitive skin rash, mild gastrointestinal symptoms, tiredness or restlessness.

Medicine Interactions *Consult your healthcare professional before use if you are taking, or think you may be taking, warfarin, oral contraceptives (birth control pills), cyclosporine, tacrolimus (anti-transplant rejection), protease inhibitors or reverse transcriptase inhibitors (antiviral drugs), methadone, amitriptyline, simvastatin, atorvastatin, omeprazole, irinotecan or imatinib (cancer drugs). St Johnís wort has been noted to increase the action of the hepatic P450 enzyme system, which may decrease the efficacy of these medications. *Consult your health care professional before use if you are taking prescription antidepressants (tricyclics or SSRIs). St Johnís wort may interfere with the action of these medications. *Consult your healthcare professional before use if you are taking digoxin. St Johnís wort may interfere with the action of this medication.
