St Johns Wort and knitting

Just wondering if any takes St Johns Wort, I took it years ago but can't remember if it made any difference. I have started taking them again and wonder how long it takes before you notice any difference. I have noticed the brand I buy has been repackaged with 'help with low mood' not mentioning depression. I bought a months suppy so I will try them anyway, it's only one tablet a day so I should remember.

Working today, so feeling a bit anxious. Having in laws to visit at the weekend so feeling very anxious about that one. I have been able to distract myself with a bit of knitting, a friend gave me loads of old wool so I am knitting scarves for charity, so I feel I am doing some good.

Hope everyone has a happy weekend :)

Hey Im on prescription meds for severe anxiety and depression but on my prescription it says "for low mood" which is an understatement so I guess it's just how they brand it. My brother takes it for depression and says it helps him he has the odd bad day but generally he's good. I think no matter what you take whether herbal or prescription they all take time to work. Good luck with the inlaws take care x
