    Has anyone used st john's wort as a natural remedy for depression for their difficult child? Just wondering. Thanks!

    I haven't used St. John's Wort, but I am using 5 HTP for my difficult child/easy child now for depression and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). 5 HTP increases serotonin levels naturally. It has made a difference for her.

    I tried it briefly for Missy. I was not using it for depression, but rather trying to see if it would help with the hypomania. It did not.

    I tried it for a brief time for myself and it gave me terrible headaches.
