Efficacy of Continuation Treatment With Hypericum perforatum in Depression

Article Abstract

Letter to the Editor

Most of these studies involved short-term treatment of an acute depressive episode. There are no extensive data from studies on whether Hypericum is an efficacious maintenance treatment for depression.
