I took St. John's Wart for 2-3 years several years ago and found it very helpful in coping with mild depression.

I have been under crushing stress and pressure for the past few years, and have gotten to the point of throwing up in the mornings, shaking, and suffering nausea, no appetite and general depressed moods throughout the day. Since taking St. John's Wort, there is a marked decrease in morning episodes and an uplifted mood and increased appetite during the day.
