I was given this by my boyfriend whose mother is an herbalist. It worked wonders for my mood to the point where after a month of using it I could stop and feel better even without it. But I have a recurring problem with depression. It would last for months but eventually would come back. One problem I have found is that I am prone to UTI's and each time I take SAMe I get one.
