I don't know if one can say that oral L-methylfolate and S-AMe are clinically equivalent. I found S-AMe to make me dysphoric within hours of taking the first dose. You might be right, though. I guess there is only one way to find out. Remember, though, that Deplin can take 1-2 months to produce reliable results. I am not so familiar with the attributes of S-AMe.
