Just took myself off Welbutrin for the second time. I have horrible anxiety and some depression. I wanted to go natural. I tried Sam-e the first time when I had severe postpartum anxiety. I felt the paranoia sinking in again, so I stopped the SAM e and opted for the Welbutrin again. Now, I am over the postpartum period, and felt okay enough to try Sam-e. I am on 400mg a day, and it has been awesom ... Show Full Comment

I started taking sam-e because I got on birth control and my depression that I could normally deal with was out of control and you can't take antidepressants on birth control so I decided to try this because it wasn't supposed to interact with birth control.

The problem is that even at a low dose, my heart races to the point where I stop taking it. I've tried taking other supplements that are recommended with it, but that hasn't worked. I've been off SAM-E for awhile now and while my heart is bac ... Show Full Comment

I am taking a half pill of 200 mg. Sam-e in the morning right before I eat. 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

My mood has improved and I find myself being more pleasant to be around and the way I react to things has changed. My wife say the improvement is very noticeable. I am mainly affected by seasonal depression (once September hits I go down hill) but think I may continue to take even after the season changes. Last year I did Prozac for 30 days but was left feeling disconnected an d discontinued use ... Show Full Comment
