Default Mixing Hawthorn and St John's Wort... Safe?

I've been having anxiety mixed with heart palpatations/chest pain. I'm 21. My blood pressure has never been too low or high, a few points above average, but nothing to be concerned about. I started taking 300mg St John's Wort twice a day (when I wake up and before I go to sleep) and the same with Hawthorn 150mg.

Just want to make sure it's safe... Apparently they both lower blood pressure, want to make sure it won't present a problem mixing the both of them (as I said, my blood pressure at worst was a tad bit high, so lowering a few points would probably be a good thing).

Thanks =)

I cant answer your question... but I dont like Saint Johns Wort becasue it causes photosensitivity... so whats up with that? an herb that makes you sensitive to the sun.. I would not take any product like that.

For anxiety I recommend one of several homeopathic preparatons

and this one is for anxiety: https://www.iherb.com/Heel-BHI-Valerianaheel-Homeopathic-Medication-Oral-Drops-1-6-fl-oz-50-ml/11187?at=0


this one is for more extreme and possibly clinical anxiety https://www.iherb.com/Heel-BHI-Ypsilo...ets/10606?at=0
