Oct 5, 2005

I was wondering if i can take st. johns wort along with my buspirone hci (busp ar). I have heard of st johns wort helping a freind of mine but heard from other people it is not safe with buspar. What should i do?

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

St John's wort can potentially interact with many medications, causing increased risk of toxicity or lack of efficacy. I would avoid it's use while taking other prescription medications, in general. BY
