I have never tried Sam-E but I just tried Lamictal for two weeks. It was the worst experience I have had in a long time. I felt like I was plugged into a live outlet. I never got tired (insomnia!), never got hungry, I just needed to be moving ALL THE TIME. But when I would do things, like work or garden, I often found myself getting agrevated and annoyed. FYI, I am not bipolar, but have many of the things that you describe, a lot of emotional pain, agitation and instability.

I do not like activating drugs, and this one was for me. However, I have heard many people who do get good result from this drug. If you try it, I hope it works for you. But watch out if you like the sun, I got ithcy sun rashes after 5 minutes in the sun. I would have to live in a cave if I stayed on Lamictal!

Oh, lastly, I was put on Neurontin to counteract some of the agitation associated with Lamictal. Now, Neurontin I do like and I have continued with it. I sleep well, and am MUCH calmer and quieter inside. I also don't feel impaired. That's my experience anyway...

Best of luck,
