We encourage you to do your research before ingesting any herb. This is especially true if you are taking any medications, as many herbs interact with specific types of medications (St. Johns Wort and Antidepressants for example, causes serotonin syndrome, which can be fatal). Always consult your doctor before trying to treat, diagnose, or cure any medical condition, as they know what is best specifically for you.
