When I wake up every morning I take one Sam-E 400 mg on an empty stomach with a large glass of water so it doesn't irritate my stomach. I do not eat anything for at least one hour. My depression is gone. It works if taken properly. As DR Oz says it must be taken on an empty stomach so it gets quickly absorbed by the gut. Nature Made sold everywhere sold everywhere is the best.

It's only been a week. So it is premature to conclude this is the miracle drug I needed. However within 3 days I was completely over my 2 year depression.

I have been on two different antidepressants before, the last one gave a difficult erection and delay ejaculation besides forgetfulness. So I stopped it. I realized that depression on me and my family is v ... Show Full Comment
