I have been taking Lovan for several years, but was changed to Lexapro a month ago as I believe that Lovan lowers the efficacy of Tamoxifan which I need to take for the next five years since having breast cancers Since taking Lexapro I am constantly hungry, craving rubbish food and have increased my weight by a kilo. Can you recommend an alternative anti depressant please. Would St Johns Wort do the job? YYYY@YYYY
