If you're off the effexor and aren't on any other serotonin affecting meds it's fine to take.  The dose depends partly on you, but also partly on what St. John's Wort you're using, standardized or not standardized, and standardized for hyperforins or just for hypericum.  If it's working I'd probably just go with it.  The main side effect of it is sun sensitivity for some people.
