No go with St. John's Wort
« on: November 29, 2018, 03:03:45 PM »
I phoned my GP surgery this morning about if SJW would be OK to take with the Olanzapine.

Just heard about taking the St. John's Wort... no go unfortunately 'cos it interacts with loads of prescriptions including my AP and "it does nasty things to your liver" so I'll have to find some other way to go through the darker months without any kind of support  :(  I'm thinking I'll need extra sprays of the B12 to see me through, but I'm glad I asked for advice rather than just assuming it would be OK! 

My GP surgery has saved me from future problems again!
Money talks, chocolate sings!  :-D

May your life be as pleasant as you are.
