Summary: Mood Enhancement
Description: Extracts of Hypericum perforatum L. (St. Johnís wort) have been recommended traditionally for a wide range of medical conditions. The most common modern-day use of St. Johnís wort is the treatment of depression. Numerous studies report St. Johnís wort to be more effective than placebo and equally effective as tricyclic antidepressant drugs in the short-term treatment of mild-to-moderate major depression (1-3 months). It is not clear if St. Johnís wort is as effective as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressants such as sertraline (Zoloftģ).Recently, controversy has been raised by two high-quality trials of St. Johnís wort for major depression that did not show any benefits. However, due to problems with the designs of these studies, they cannot be considered definitive. Overall, the scientific evidence supports the effectiveness of St. Johnís wort in mild-to-moderate major depression. The evidence in severe major depression remains unclear. St. Johnís wort can cause many serious interactions with prescription drugs, herbs, or supplements. Therefore, people using any medications should consult their healthcare providers including their pharmacist prior to starting therapy.
