Excellent, reduces my joint pain
Posted by Reviewer3308983 on May 14, 2010
I bought the 200 mg before, and found that it helped reduce pain in my joints. I get pain in my wrist and knee from a previous injury and when I take Jarrow's SAM-e the pain is reduced. I bought the 400mg because I thought it's easier than taking two 200mg and ConsumerLab said 400mg is the effective dosage.

Seems to work. Prefer a product with less additives.

Excellent product - my wife uses it for Fibromyalgia
Great product but irritating
Posted by Reviewer2644874 on Oct 04, 2012
I took this product for several months and got amazing results from the SAM-e in the product. However I always mild but annoying cramping from it. I managed to resolve that issue temporarily by taking always on an empty stomach and not eating for at least 30 mins. However after a few months my cramping began to get worse. I have been advised that the enteric coating is the most likely cause and not the SAM-e itself. I agree that is probably true because the enteric coating is a synthetic plastic that also has malitol (SP) in it which can be very irritating to the colon. Only a small percentage of people have a reaction and most people can manage it by using on an empty stomach. I'm sad about not being able to take the product anymore because of the irritation but I loved the effects of the SAM-e while it lasted. My father was in a hospice and I suggested the doctor give him this SAM-e and he became a lot more upbeat and chipper on it so quickly that even his doctor -- who was against it in favor of drugs -- was decent enough to remark at his improvement after switching to SAM-e from the antidepressant she had him on.
Not feeling anything

I've gone through two weeks of this so far and nothing new or improved. I still hope by the time I finish the box that I will feel some change.

Have tried different brands and all dosages. They all tend to make me feel tired with occaisional euphoric feelings. I have since switched to St John's Wort which works great for me.
Maybe this brand will work for you.

I have used Sam-e for 2 years and tried this brand. Unfortunately the enteric coating was not dissolving on these tablets so this brand did not work for me.

I tried this at the highest recommended dose, faithfully, because I had to stop taking NSAIDs for arthritis. It made no difference in the pain, unfortunately.
not the pill i wanted
