Extra Strength Tabs Way too Large
I had been taking these for several years with no complaints. Within the past six months or so, however, the tablets have changed. They used to be smooth and oval, now they are very large and rectangular. I just can't get them down with that size and shape.
Also, a few tablets in one box were soft, like chewing gum, which for this product is unacceptable as they are enteric coated and not supposed to dissolve in the stomach.
Swanson customer service has been EXCELLENT in addressing these issues with me over the phone, by the way.
If you have problems swallowing really large pills, I would definitely not recommend these. I'll be switching exclusively to the regular strength tablets from now on.

Helps a lot
This product helps my mood and my joints - how cool is that?? I've been taking it for awhile and Swanson's price is better than any I've seen.
I feel better and my wallet feels better : + }

I have used Sam-E for quite a while now, and it is wonderful! I can definitely feel a difference in my joints and mood when I use it regularly. Swanson's seems to be the best quality - most effective - that I've found. I've tried other brands nominally less expensive, but none work as well as these, and the bubble cards make it easy to travel with. Thank you, Swanson, for making such an effective and affordable product!

This product helps my mood. It seems to take the "edge" off when I can't cope very well. I do take it every day and I take another if it is a especially difficult day. I looked up the ingredients and you do have to check what medications it might interact with. I am very pleased with this and I would recommend it

I would recommend this product to anyone.

This product has been of the utmost help to me for exactly how it is advertised. Swanson has the best price & trust me, I have checked every source available! When you live on a fixed budget, this is of significant value. Swanson has dependable service whether you order on-line or by phone, I feel products are reliably consistent with good quality control. I am a customer of 10+ yrs. & will continue to be after making the mistake of ordering from someone else. CSRs should all follow the training of Swanson. Always a pleasant experience here.

Works For Me
I have been using this for 5 months and will continue to use because it is working well for me!

I first bought sam-e from one of the quality, extremely high priced vitamin brands... then switched to Swansons.
Can't tell the difference... except in my wallet.

I have been using this product for several months now and can't see going to any other brand.

Within the first week, I could feel a lift in mood. Now, not so much.

I won't be without it!
I have tried every other mood enhancing supplement out there but nothing else works like sam-e. It is gentle on my stomach whereas some other things cause problems. It is so expensive in the stores here but very affordable through Swansonvitamins.

I have used SAMe for years and this is best quality at the best price. SAMe helps me keep a healthy, balanced state of well being. This Swanson brand is the most cost effective one that I have found on the market.

Prices is right...
Ive been taking this product for about a year now and it has worked well, but seems Im used to the low initial dose but you do feel bummed when you've missed one thats for sure, Im considering upping my intake since Im taking one per day and the directions say up to 4 per day so with the price Swanson has here its worth giving it a try!!

have more energy, much better moods, even lost a few pounds, took about 2 1/2 weeks to kick in but worth the wait. I take one every morning, thinking of taking another in the afternoon when my energy starts to wear down. Would recommend this supplement.

My husband & I both take this. We take 1 or 2 pills per day and this Sam-E actually works! It improves mood & energy & even seems to have some good effects for the joints & skin. Both my husband and myself notice a big difference when we don't take this. It's one supplement we don't want to go without. We've tried many different brands of Sam-E & they're more expensive & don't seem to do anything. This Swanson's brand & dose is a phenomenal price/value.

Color that's artificial.
FD&C yellow #5 is Tartrazine.
The Jarrow 400mg seems "cleaner"
Would buy the home brand if the formula used a natural color.

Great product at a wonderful price.

I have tried a lot of different products from Swanson and others and have either noticed a small benefit or none over a three month period. sAME however is in a different ball park. I tried taking it twice and each time got a severe case of diarrhea. The second time I tried it just to make sure of the cause, and the diarrhea and flatulence lasted four days. Lucky I was close to the WC is all I can say!
I wish the product did work for me as the benefits seem awesome, but be forewarned that gastrointestinal problems are contraindicated.

By far the least expensive I've seen anywhere

can't live without it
I have been using SAM-E for 15 years. This product keeps my joints working and as a good side effect keeps my mood bright. Swansons has priced this 400 Sam-e at a very good price and I will continue to buy Sam-e from them.
