St. John's Wort or Sam-e?

Any experience with either? I want to try one but I'm not sure which one.

  • St. John's Wart isn't safe. It interacts with too many other things. .
    Talk to your doctor first.

  • I tried both for depression. SAM-e gave me migraines. St John's Wort worked well for me. I took if for about a year.

  • I would talk to your doctor first; especially if you are taking any other types of medications; here is information on both--
