bbelle Help: St. John's Wort (77* d) RE: Help: St. John's Wort 01 Oct 00

Be very careful ... St. John's Wort is a MAO (monoamine oxidase) Inhibitor and eating certain foods can cause one's blood pressure to go through the roof, thereby causing stroke.

An example of foods would be: anything containing tyramine, i.e., bananas; processed and/or smoked meats and cheeses; fava beans; and the list goes on.

If you are currently taking an anti-depressant and you decide to stop and take St. John's Wort instead, you are playing with dynamite and I suggest you consult your physician.

There are many alternative medicines that will do one no harm to take them, however, this is not one.
