st johns wort

Nov 22, 2005

Can i take SJW with Buspar?

Response from Dr. Horwath

St Johns Wort should not be a problem combined with BuSpar.

However, St Johns Wort causes very significant interactions with many antiretroviral drugs. It induces the metabolism of several protease inhibitors and other ARTs, and can lead to lower drug levels, loss of antiretroviral effect, treatment failure and development of resistance.
