Experience with SAM-e?

Am wondering if anyone has switched from prescribed anti-depprasants to using SAM-e with success? Have been on MAO Inbibitor for 13 years and it is not working well anymore to control depression. Am considering SAM-e, need suggestions.

I have taken SAM-e for over 2 years. I also take Celexa. This combination works very well for me.

Thanks for reply Utahkid. What is your SAM-e dose per day and what brand are you using (do you order SAM-e through the mail?

Re: Experience with SAM-e?

Sam-e has not had widespread or blind trial testing. A few small tests that were done did not prove that it helped depression. It is too expensive for me to try anyway. The state is paying for my meds. They would not pay for a supplement. I take a multi-mineral tablet each day and Vits. That is about all I can afford.
