Each capsule contains 300mg of St John’s Wort aerial parts flowers (Hypericum perforatum L.)
Directions: As a food supplement for oral short term use only. Adults and the Elderly: Take one St Johns Wort capsule three times a day, swallowed with water. The patient should consult a doctor or qualified healthcare practitioner if symptoms worsen or do not improve after 6 weeks. Not recommended for children or adolescents under 18 years.
Do not use the product if you are under 18 years, are about to undergo surgery or are pregnant or breastfeeding. St John's Wort should not be taken at the same time as other medications (see leaflet) and hormonal contraceptives including the 'Pill'. Increased sensitivity of the skin to sunlight may occur in rare cases. Do not take if you have hypersensitivity to St John’s Wort or any of the excipients. Hyperidrine should not be used in patients with known dermal photosensitivity or those undergoing phototherapy or any photodiagnostic procedures. Hyperidrine should not be taken concomitantly with any of the medicines specified in section below. This is because St. John’s wort (Hypericum performatum) has been shown to induce the cytochrome P450 isoenzymes CYP1A2, CYP2C19, CYP2C9 and CYP3A4 as well as the transport protein P-glycoprotein. This results in pharmacokinetic interactions with a large number of medicines including a possible decrease in the effectiveness of those medicines. Pharmacodynamic interactions have also been identified with antidepressants, particularly the SSRI antidepressants and the triptan group of medicines.
The use of Hyperidrine is not recommended for children and adolescents under 18 years of age because data are not sufficient and medical advice should be sought. If the condition worsens or if symptoms persist for more than 6 weeks medical advice should be sought. Hyperidrine is intended for the relief of symptoms of slightly low mood and mild anxiety. Patients with signs and symptoms of depression should consult a doctor for appropriate treatment. In very rare cases, particularly in fair-skinned individuals, sunburn type reactions may occur on skin areas exposed to strong sunlight due to photosensitisation by St. John’s Wort. Patients taking Hyperidrine should avoid excessive sunbathing or the use of sunbeds or solariums. Hyperidrine should be discontinued at least 10 days prior to elective surgery due to the potential for St.John’s Wort to interact with drugs used during general and regional anaesthesia.
Interaction with other medicaments and other forms of interaction:
Substances in St John’s Wort (Hypericum perforatum) have been shown to induce Cytochrome P450 isoenzymes CYP1A2, CYP2C19, CYP2C9 and CYP3A4 as well as the transport protein P-glycoprotein. This results in pharmacokinetic interactions with a large number of medicines leading to a potential decrease in the effectiveness of those medicines. The concomitant use of ciclosporin, tacrolimus for systemic use, amprenavir, indinavir and other protease inhibitors, irinotecan and warfarin is contraindicated Special care should be taken in case of concomitant use of all drug substances the metabolism of which is influenced by CYP1A2, CYP3A4, CYP2C9, CYP2C19 or P - glycoprotein (e.g. amitriptyline, fexofenadine, benzodiazepines, methadone, simvastatin, digoxin, finasteride), because a reduction of plasma concentration is possible. Users of oral contraceptives taking St John’s Wort (Hypericum perforatum) may experience intracyclic menstrual bleeding and risk of contraception failure is increased. Clinically significant pharmacodynamic interactions have also been identified with the SSRI antidepressants and the triptan group of medicines used to treat migraines. Due to the increased risk of undesirable effects associated with these interactions this product should not be used concomitantly with these types of Medicines. Therefore, Hyperidrine (St John’s Wort) should not be taken concomitantly with the Medicines included in the leaflet enclosed within the box. Please read this ahead of taking and if you have any questions, please email email@example.com ahead of purchase.
