May I ask how long it took for the SAM-e to take effect? Also, does your wife take B vitamins with it? I have also heard that you should start with 200/mg twice a day. (It's great that a smaller dose works for your wife.) Does she get the Omega 3s from flaxseed oil? Thank you for any more information you can provide. It's always great to know about something that works for someone--there's hope!
> My wife suffers from recurrent depression and has never been willing to take AD's. She tried St. John's Wort which was somewhat helpful but gave her side effects - so she stopped. She started taking a combination of Omega-3 oils(2grams/day) and SAM-e 200 mg/ day and she has not had a serious bout of depression since. It's been amazing. Most articles we found said that people often need 400 Mg or more of SAM-e but she's very small - and it is pretty danged expensive so she started low. And it seems to have worked. Yay! I hope it is as helpful to you as it has been to her. Good Luck. Jay.
