Have any of you tried it? I found it in a post from Rianna. I did some web searching and it seems too good to be true.

I have taken prescriptions in the past but right now they are all giving me side effects that literally knock me flat on the bed. The odds are because I now take Cortef for an adrenal insufficiency and oxycodone and they use the saw liver pathway as many anti-depressents.

Since this is even liver friendly and mine was giving me problems in the spring it seems to be the perfect solution.

Next Question...what dosage?

Web searching has me finding MD types that recommend starting at 100 mg. Some said 200 and others 400 mg. The clinical studies done I found often used 1600 even.

Rianna...I think you said you do 400 on an empty stomach. Is anyone else out there using it?

Thank you very much.

Hey Working At It, I tried Sam-e many years ago...I dont recall what dosage I took but it didnt help me at all.
Perhaps if your wanting to go the natural route your doctor can give you a recomendation on what dosage to take that would be safe with your other medication and illness.
Good luck with it and let us know how you do....
