I have a problem with tinnitus and I also have panic and anxiety attacks. I’m fully aware they feed each other I’ve been taking Gingko Biloba for the ears and have noticed some change towards the positive. My question: is it possible to take St Johns Wort as well? Would there be a potential interaction?
Ginkgo enhances circulation to the head, helping to relieve tinnitus when insufficient circulation is a factor. St. John’s wort nourishes and calms the nerves. It is unlikely that there will be a negative interaction. It’s a good idea to keep a diary of your symptoms to help you determine effectiveness.
