Thank you Tim, for your reply. St. Johns Wort can be purchased at any Health foods store, I got mine at Sun Harvest. You may be able to get it in a grocery store health section by the vitamins. Not sure...but any health food store will have it. They sell it in 300 mg (in which you take 3 a day) and I saw a 900 mg tablet which is a once a day pill. I tried the 300 mg and take them morning, noon and night. This has worked very well for me. I was simply shocked that after 2 days, I already felt them working. I have heard others swear by it also. I know a man here at my office who has taken it for 4 years and was suffering from depression prior to that. If you research it online, it tells you how big it is oversea's and even here in the states. Try doing that, you might be more compelled to try it. I wasn't clinally depressed..I just felt a high level of anxiety from quitting the hydrocodone. If you read my earlier posts...I didn't exactly wean myself off of it, I pretty much stopped cold turkey and it was very difficult. It did take me about 30 days to completely get over the physical withdrawals. The mental withdrawals stayed with me all the way until 2 weeks ago when I woke up one morning and said "NO MORE"...I've got to get to feeling better. It was that very day when I forced myself to stock up on vitamins, reading, research, a pilates and yoga mat (goodness I must have spent $400 that day on books, magazines....vitamins etc...) but I was spending that every 2 months on hydrocodone! I will help you all I can through this forum. I want to. I was miserable when I quit. I truly was. It has taken 2 months but it was very much worth it...VERY MUCH. Yes, please try the St. Johns Wort...I would be interested to see how it helps you.... I know it's hard, (My2kn will agree to this) but try to get into excercising, even a little at a time...all the research I did on endorphins paid off. The body produces natural endorphins that are released during things like working out...we loose these in the madness of the opiates like the hydrocodone. I'm serious, the medication literally takes over our seratonine and dopamine levels and those are so hard to get back to natural. You take care and please feel free to post me that I'm back from that icky city (although some of the architecture was absolutely beautiful).... I will probably never go back...I can get on the healthboard more often and check for messages from you :-)
