Depression is rated in terms of severity (mild, moderate or severe) and is classified according to how frequently it occurs. There have been more than 20 double blind placebo controlled double blind clinical trials of standardised St John's Wort extracts in the treatment of depression. In cases of severe depression standard antidepressant medications remain the most effective option.
