    I started this about 18 months ago, and found it worked very well for treating my anxiety / depression which comes from clinically diagnosed PTSD. I found it worked so well, however if I forget to take it for a day I do notice the difference! As a side effect, it also helps with the arthritus from my accident. I stopped after a while and within a week felt fine not taking it. However following a ... Show Full Comment

    I have only been taking Dr's Best SAM-e for 6 days - taking 400mgs in the morning on an empty stomach and then 400mgs at lunch.

    I suffer from depression, anxiety, pi-polar and ptsd. Within 24 hours of taking approximately 60 mg. wow could I feel the difference.

    I started this treatment in Mar 2015 at 400 mgs. It didn't seem to do anything so after a month increased to 800 mgs. Then about a month later I noticed my legs were getting tired very easily and did not seem to want to do what I wanted them to. This kept getting worse.
