Suggested Use: Start with 1 tablet per day. The best time to take SAM-e is on an empty stomach at least 30 minutes before a meal. Clinical studies indicate that benefits are most likely evident in as little as 7–14 days of supplementation. If benefits are not achieved within two weeks, you may require a higher level of supplementation. To help determine the proper level of supplementation that works for you, gradually increase the number of tablets (maximum 1,600 mg/day) and consult with your doctor until benefits are achieved.
