View Full Version : st jons wort dosage

I am getting a little confused about the dosage i should take for st johns wort. On the page on SJW that is linked in some of the other messages it says to take 3 x 300 mg per day. But i have bought Kira one-a-day tablets and they are 1 x300 g containing 900 ug of total hypericin. Does this mean i am supposed to take 3 of the one a day tablets or have they a higher concentration of the active ingredient?

I am way too scared to take any proper meds but am feeling really depressed and am hoping that with time I can tolerate taking SJW.

Has anybody a clue about this dosage/

Thanks in advance

Have a look on www.sjwinfo.org on their message board

They are really up on all the differences of brands.. Kira is a good brand to have bought.

Do also check out carefully if you are taking any other meds at all.

You musn't take St John's Wort along with anti-depressants and I believe it can affect the contraceptive pill too.

It's good to share information isn't it Darren ?
We all find out different things and can learn from each other.

Glad both the site and taking SJW helped you .

Did bog all for me ( which I was disappointed about ) except gave me a huge amount of worry as I was on the pill and my cycle went haywire and I had a few nervous days about pregnancy - you won't have that issue !!

I hope it works just as well this time for you .
