The British Herbal Pharmacopoeia 1983 lists St John’s Wort with a specific indication of menopausal neurosis. It was also used to treat urinary and gastrointestinal problems. St John’s Wort also has a history of use in topical application. Studies have found it to be particularly effective in treating the core symptoms of mild to moderate depression (such as depressed mood, guilt, suicide, gastrointestinal symptoms) with additional beneficial effects on accompanying depression-related anxiety. In the 1990’s St John’s Wort was shown to have activity against enveloped viruses i.e. HIV and herpes. This activity was enhanced by exposure to light. A Canadian trial in 2009 showed after 12 weeks of treatment with St John’s Wort that there was a decrease of hot flushes of 30 – 50%.

It’s been shown to be beneficial for: Seasonal affective disorder, fatigue, insomnia, enhanced mood in athletes, generalised anxiety disorder, menopausal symptoms, premenstrual tension, orofacial herpes, genital herpes, polyneuropathy, depression, nervous tension, stress, neuralgia, chicken pox, shingles, glandular fever, cytomegalovirus and Epstein Barr virus.

*St John’s Wort is contraindicated in those taking indinavir (HIV protease inhibitor), cyclosporin (immunosuppressive agent) and warfarin. Caution is advised for patients taking other HIV protease inhibitors, non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors, theophylline, digoxin, anticonvulsants, oral contraceptives, seletive serotonin-reuptake inhibitors and triptans (migraine medication).
