    Just hit 1 star for each, because I haven't tried the treatment. I just wanted to point out that it is important to distinguish between American Skullcap and Chinese Skullcap, which supposedly have different effects on the Human physiology.

    I had a bad reaction to it, taken as a "tincture" in grain alcohol (like most all herbal tictures are), sold in a small bottle in the local health store. First of all, I'm a recovered alcoholic who should've known better than to trust an alcohol tincture. I don't know if it was the Skullcap or the alcohol solvent, but it sent me INTO a panic attack. (I tried Skullcap as a rep ... Show Full Comment

    Ican't take the usual treatments for stress so consulted a herbal specialist and he gave me a skullcap tincture to take 3 times a day. Its made all the difference to how I handle my stressful days and annoying people. Its not by any particular company. Its home made by the practicioner but it wasn't in the list provided.

    So I really love Skullcap, but after speaking with my doctor have decided to stop any further usage. The information I received shows that Skullcap Scutellaria can cause significant damage to the liver including increasing ALT/AST 5 to 10x normal, elevating bilirubin, causes reversible acute hepatitis. Figured I would share the information, although I am truly sad to see this taken out of my herba ... Show Full Comment
