This product is very effective for mild depression/anxiety. It also makes your joints feel great. I just wish it was cheaper, and that more came in a box. You can get generic prescriptive meds for cheaper with insurance which I find sad because this is much, much safer to take. It doesn't stimulate appetite, or have other terrible side effects like regular antidepressants. Be careful to notice the other reviews which state the misleading packaging regarding the servings. They are 200mg per pill and not 400mg as it looks like at first glance.

I am highly sensitive to any medication so one pill has a big effect on me. And it wasn't a good one, it was way too much at once for my system. I had to cut them in half (which you are not supposed to do as you will probably get an uneven dosage) but I am working up to a full pill eventually. Or I will take half in the morning and wait till later in the day to take the other.

This is one of the only brands that does not contain mannitol. If you get a stomach ache from Sam-E that is probably the culprit. This product will probably fix that problem for you if you had stomach issues with another brand. I read it is recommended to also take a good B-supplement while taking Sam-E to enhance effectiveness.

I have also tried a liquid Sam-E, and unfortunately I think it degraded so much it had hardly any effect at all. Switching back to this was like a breath of fresh air. It calms my frazzled nerves. It also makes me want to do things like clean the house, wash dishes, or clean the tub. It's bizarre. I am up for leaving my house more often, and am more likely to want to do fun things. This is not like me at all. It just lifts your mood.

It looks like you are getting twenty 400-mg tablets. But while a "serving" is 400 mg, the tablets are only 200 mg each. So the package contains only ten servings. Not such a good deal, and deceptive in my opinion.

Other than that, it seems to work as well as any other brand of SAMe

        Awesome customer service! When I pointed out the discrepancy between what is stated in the title of the listing and what is actually delivered, the two customer service reps I spoke with agreed with me, and sent me the missing quantity of medicine at no additional cost to me. They also agreed to communicate my concerns to those who can actually correct the listing or pull the product. If you have been a victim of this fiasco, I strongly encourage you to contact customer service for proper redress of grievance.

          Comments about Natrol SAMe, 400mg, Enteric Coated Tablets, 20 ea:

          I was very disappointed that the dosage/strength advertised on the website was very misleading. I expected 20 tablets of 400 mg each, not the 20 tablets of 200 mg each. I should have read the reviews before I ordered... Otherwise, I feel that this Sam-e will be as effective as other brands when you take two tablets a day. But due to the misleading description, I would not recommend this to a friend.

            I love that you take two pills for a standard dose---makes swallowing them manageable. Rating this product low just because the user chose not to read the package is ridiculous. This SAM-e is very effective and the only SAM-e that doesn't give me heartburn. Really helps with mild to moderate depression. Has made a world of difference to me. And no side effects! I'm very pleased! Price is great here at drugstore.com and quick shipping.

              I should have looked at the box itself before ordering--tabs are 200mg and not the 400mg advertised. So instead of the 20 doses I thought I was buying, there are only 10. I've been taking another brand of SAM-E and bought this for first (and last) time.

              My senior dogs take SAMe as ordered by our Vet and they take 800 mg per day. Had I realized when I purchased it that it was deseptively packaged and that I would have to give each dog 4 tablets to achieve the ordered dose I would have selected a different product. Our local pharmacy was out and so were we so we thought we would take a chance. It did fill the gap.

                This product was listed as 400Mg, 20 tablets. The assumption is that the package contains 20 tablets @400Mg ea. However, the packaging states 2 tablets per dose. Therefore, the package contains only 10 400Mg doses, not the 20 I expected.

                  I had to use other brands of SAMe when I ran out of the Natrol brand - I cannot find it in stores. I'm not sure why the Natrol brand works so much better for me. It is taken with food, which is not only more convenient, but perhaps absorbs more efficently for me.Due to Lyme Disease etc., I cannot have gluten. The Natrol brand also does not have dairy, which I cannot tolerate either.Drugstore.com has the best price [...]

                      FYI the package and the description are missleading! This is only a 400mg DOSAGE. The directions say take 2, 200mg pills so really it is 200mg in a 400mg dosage, you are only getting 10 days worth not the 20 that it says.
