Comment:
I'm very thankful for SAMe. I've been on a number of antidepressants for 20 years. They don't work nearly as well as SAMe.

I read on a different website where a person DOES NOT need to take the high, high doses recommended on the Sam-e package or used in trials to see good effects from taking it. I have only been taking it for a few days but I already feel less depressed and more optimistic. This same website said that some people feel effe ... Show Full Comment
