Remotiv is recommended for the relief of anxiety, nervous tension and irritability and is helpful during times of stress.
Remotiv is the only St. John’s wort product which contains Ze 117, the specifically clinically proven Swiss extract which has been proven to be effective in published clinical trials.
St. John’s wort has been used since the middle ages to help manage anxiety, stress and sleeplessness. Ancient Greek herbalists, such as Hippocrates, originally documented many of St. John’s wort’s medicinal uses.
Remotiv tablets are recommended for the relief of mild anxiety, nervous tension, irritability and are helpful during times of stress.
Each Remotiv tablet contains extracts equivalent to dry:
Hypericum perforatum herb 1.375g
Adults take one tablet morning and evening or as directed by your doctor or health care professional.
The effect of Remotiv tablets is usually seen within 10 to 14 days of starting treatment, and a duration of treatment of four to six weeks is recommended.
Treatment beyond this period may be suggested by your doctor or healthcare professional. If symptoms persist, you should seek the advice of your doctor or health care professional.
Increased sensitivity to the sun – Very large doses of Remotiv may cause photosensitisation (increased sensitivity to the sun and sunburn).
Pregnancy and breastfeeding – There is no data on the use of Remotiv during pregnancy or in breastfeeding mothers. Remotiv tablets should only be taken during pregnancy and used by breastfeeding mothers under medical supervision.
Kidney and liver disease – Due to the absence of clinical data, Remotiv should not be used in patients with severe renal impairment (kidney problems) or hepatic impairment (liver problems).
Severe depressive illness – Remotiv is not recommended in these patients.
Possible interactions between Remotiv tablets and other medicines:
St John’s wort affects the way some prescription medicines work. Please consult your health care professional.
When St John’s wort is taken together with certain other drugs, the speed at which the other drugs in the body are broken down could possibly be increased. This may result in lower levels of the other drugs being present and/or could affect the action of the other drugs.
Drugs definitely affected in this way are indinavir and cyclosporin. Other drugs that may be affected are warfarin, digoxin, theophylline, anticonvulsants, the oral contraceptive pill and psychotropic reuptake inhibitors. You should discuss this with your healthcare professional.
