Carli-do you take a b complex vitamin with it? Everything I read said you should. I'm going to take it with my Womens 1 a day unless I find a different b complex vitamin at the vitamin store.
Hmm...no I don't. I should do some research. Honestly, I was just somewhat desperate not wanting to go the prescription route and stumbled onto Sam E. I can notice a definite difference if I miss a day or two. I also take a good dose of fish oil and vitamin d. I will look into the b complex though. Thanks for the tip.

I love her book, it has helped me tremendously!
I also highly recommend these books. You answer questions and, based on your answers, get a list of suggested supplements. The results when following her suggestions are amazing! There are several threads on her books here.

Please post an update with how you do with the SamE...I am very curious since my wife suffers from anxiety too. Good Luck!

Here are some of the links I mentioned I read about 5-HTP that scared me from using it.

5-HTP: Uses, Side Effects, Interactions and Warnings - WebMD

5HTP supplement benefit, side efects, dosage 50 mg, 100 mg - for depression, anxiety, weight loss, sleep

I've been taking the SamE for 3 days, but only 1 pill in the a.m., and I don't feel a difference. I've also stopped caffeine but my mind is still a bit racy.

MsWoods Thanks for posting the above links on 5-HTP.

WebMd has scared the jebebees out of me. I'm going to stop taking it.

What I've read on SAM-E, it will take two to four weeks to feel a difference.
