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.

> Well the makers of deplin have a chart that shows comversion of homocysteine to methione and than to sam-e. However we don't know if l-methylfolate may do other things in the body other than make sam-e. Also the sam-e that deplin helps the body produce may be superior to the sam-e that is maufactured. So deplin is probably a superior product than sam-e pills. However my pharm charges $50 for a bottle of deplin. I will look for a cheaper souce.

If it turns out that your ideal dosage of Deplin is 3.75mg, you can justify its use monetarily.
