St John’s wort as you know has serotonergic activity and must not be taken at the same time with venlafaxine . Only after a week of stopping St John’s wort the treatment with venlafaxine should be started and this minimises the risk of an interaction. Therefore you may start the treatment as prescribed by your doctor.
