Re: St John's wort and hormone treatment

Hi @Purpletrunks - Oh?  That's really interesting, as I've never heard of it being used topically, or that there were such topical preparations of it. Only ever come across tablets.  Delly xXx

Hi Delly,

I've been prescribed it for its wound healing properties,so it would be topical.

@Purpletrunks - Hi Lou, you don't say WHY you are looking at St Johns Wort?? Would it be for its antidepressant properties, or otherwise?? Delly xXx

St John's wort and hormone treatment

Hi,

 

I keep finding links to docs on this forum that talk about the evidence for not using St John's wort whilst on tamoxifen or having an estrogen positive cancer. But all the links don't work. Could anyone signpost me?

 

And does anyone happen to know whether the same is true for topical application?

 

Thanks

Lou
