Anxiety is often one of the symptoms of depression and when it is part of an overall depressed picture, it appears that St John’s Wort will help the anxiety along with the other symptoms of depression. Some people, however, suffer from anxiety without exhibiting any symptoms of depression and so far there have been no research studies to determine whether these people will benefit from St John’s Wort. It would not be surprising if the herb did prove to be of some value in anxiety since many other antidepressants have been found to be helpful in the treatment of anxiety disorders. There certainly seems little harm in trying the herbal treatment for a month or two if you are anxious and determining for yourself whether it is helpful to you, but you may want to start with a low dosage and increase it slowly since anxious people may be more susceptible to the symptoms of restlessness reported by some people on St John’s Wort.
