Rated 2 out of 5 by LJKC Disappointed
I, too, switched to the Swanson brand of SAM-e and am not happy with it!
1/ The pills are gigantic and stick in your throat
2/ They contain ingredients I don't want to ingest
3/ They smell and taste AWFUL, long after taking.
4/ They don't dissolve like the other brand I purchased before - after taking this Swanson brand, my husband suddenly had stomach issues and had to burp - and out came residue from the pill!
We have always taken SAM-e on an empty stomach, so I know it was this pill - we've not had any trouble with the other brand.
It's very seldom I've been disappointed with Swanson brand products, but I had to share this.

I purchased these Swanson brand Sam-E. Due to the pricing. They seem to have about half the dosage as claimed compared to the national brands such as Best Naturals. I have noticed the lack of efficacy in the Swanson brands and think in the future I will just stick with the national branded items as they have higher quality control.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bebee Another Great SWANSON's Product
I take SAMe for my own personal reasons, and have for many years! In addition, I can tell you specifically that I have been a loyal customer of SWANSON's since 1999, they rank 99.99% in my book for quality and service, and I would recommend SWANSON's to all!

I'd been using Costco's SAMe when I changed over to Swanson's. I immediately noticed a drop in effectiveness from the one day to next. Seemed I had to take twice the dose for a still unsatisfying effect. It did make me very drowsy, such that I could take it if I woke up early and would fall back into a deep sleep. Oddly, it didn't make me drowsy during the day...Overall, I prefer the Costco. Don't know why it'd be so different?

I purchased this and a full spectrum light bulb for my reading lamp and have noticed my mood improved in about 1 month. I took one a day on an empty stomach (no upset) and when I stopped taking it, I noticed a difference. Ordered more immediately. So happy this works for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sanu Effective for Me!
I began by taking one 200mg tablet/day for one week, then upped to 2/day. By the end of week two, I noticed a marked improvement in my mood and overall feeling of well-being. It really took the edge off and helped me to cope with a personal crisis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sunnee Best Price Ever..
My husband was told by his Doctor to start taking
this product. We saw the same product at one of the store's Dr. recommended. I checked your website and was so pleased with your price. You saved us a lot and my husband is a believer about why I shop Swanson's regularly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by feelgood45 Good product but terrible packaging
The tablets are in a foil blister wrap. Many of the tablets come out with a piece of foil stuck into it. Because I feel that foil isn't good to ingest, I have thrown many of the tablets away. I am very disappointed!

I have tried 5-HTP, St. John's Wort and most recently SAM-E to boost my mood and be more social. So far, SAM-E works the best of the three.
SAM-E acts more gradually and the effects persist for days. In contrast to 5-HTP little acute effects are noticeable upon ingestion. I feel best on 2nd or 3rd day after taking it.
it is important to note that recommended dosage is extremely high. Try taking 1 tablet a week if you have never taken this before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mel34 Thanks, Swansons!
I have used Sam-e for years, and Swanson's version is the lowest-priced I've been able to find. Works great!

Great product which I use for mood support. I'm so glad my doctor told me about it. It is also a much better price than the name brand. Thank you, Swanson!!

This was my first time using this product and was very pleased with the results. Took two tablets before breakfast and two more later in the day. The result was quite noticeable. Like it says on the box "Emotional Wellness".

I've been using SAMe for a while now (different brand) and really can tell a difference when I take it. I just switched over to getting it from Swanson and have been very pleased with the quality and price. I will definitely reorder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kajj I actually see a difference
I had to take this for about 30 days before I saw a difference. I started with 400 a day for about 3 months but find that 200 a day oes the trick. I'm glad they package these in foil packs because I've read it's not a very stable product otherwise. I've also read that it's very important to take this with B vitamins which I do.

I began taking a doctor-suggested dose of 200 mg three times a day and within the first week noticed that I was generally feeling better. Swanson's SAM-e is priced right and packaged conveniently.

I started taking this and stopped for a short while when I ran out ... what a difference it has made. I am back to taking it every day. It helps me concentrate and it helps me deal with every day emotions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kham Best price around
My vet recommended Sam-e for my dog. She has been taking it for six years. I did purchase Sam-e at a local drug store and paid much more for it until someone told me about Swanson's. She has taken the Swanson's brand Sam-e for over two years now and it works as well as a name brand at a quarter of the price.
