St. John's Wort No Help for ADHD Symptoms

"A friend told me that St. John’s wort can help people with ADHD. Is this true?"

by Larry Silver, M.D.

Many herbal remedies have been tried as possible ADHD treatments. To date, none have been found to be successful.

A recent study on using St. John’s wort to treat ADHD reached the same conclusion: It did not help. This study was discussed in the June 2008 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association. View the study abstract.
