Aniexty has taken control of my life. About 3 weeks ago I started taking St. John wort for my aniexty and it started working but then I found out I was pregnant so I stopped. But my aniexty has come back and it's making me want to kill myself. I'm usually a happy person but the aniexty is making me miserable. My question is can I take maybe 300 ml of sjw while pregnant? Will it make me have a miscarriage or my child have birth defects? Btw I'm 6 weeks pregnant
I'm sorry that you are feeling this way.. But please remember that anxiety is temporary.. You may have flare ups but if you get on te right meds and see a therapist the anxiety will go away!!!!!! Don't think of a permanent solution for a temporary problem! Please talk to someone close to you !
As for St. John's Wort, contact the American Herbal Products Association, which can direct you to contraindications. Keep in mind St. John's Wort is an anti-depressant, not anti-anxiety, so if it's working that's great but maybe you have a different problem than you thought.
