    I take 900mg at bed time. It helps me get up and face my day with a smile. If I do not take it I am worthless (depression). I have taken St.John's wort off an on for 10 years. First day I took it this year(Aug.)I cleaned out my fridge with a smile(who likes that job).

    Excellent response and effectiveness. Know SJW is reason for improvement, as symptons return if I miss 1 day.

    I first started SJW about a month ago along with Fish Oil and so far still feeling depressed. The only thing that I noticed since taking it is weird dreams and tiredness. The dreams are very cool and I often look foward to them when before I go to sleep. But anyway, I will continue taking them along with my fish oil in hopes of alleviating my depression symptoms.

    I started taking it for depression. After only 2-3 days I noticed my skin felt like it had be chemically burned (and yes, i know that feeling) and my eyelids were especially sensitive. Turns out St. Johns Wort causes extreme sensitivity in people with more fair skin types. It was causing my skin to literally cook from the inside out. It was very painful. I stopped taking it right away.

    So far I'm in a better mood when taking SJW. I take 450mg SJW before bedtime since i also have insomnia and chronic fatigue disorder.
