Although I really like to put things in my own words for reviews, for this part I am taking from the site so I don't mess it up. I'll give you my evaluation at the end.
SAM-e is a naturally occurring compound that is found in all living things. It’s distributed throughout the human body and it contributes to maintaining mood levels.
SAM-e levels tend to decline as people get older and certain groups of people, including those with low mood, tend to have lower levels of SAM-e in their bodies.
When the body doesn’t make enough SAM-e on its own, taking a SAM-e supplement can support many important functions. SAM-e Complete is a daily over-the counter dietary supplement available from retailers everywhere, as well as online.
SAM-e is best known for restoring a healthy mood by promoting a balance of brain cell functions.

There is a very cool campaign Nature Made SAM-e Complete recently launched called “Give a Smile,” http://www.sam-e.com/give-a-smile. They are working with Dream Factory, the second largest children’s wish-granting organization in the U.S., to grant the wishes of three children suffering from a critical or chronic illness. Through this campaign SAM-e will donate to a child’s wish for every social action you or your readers complete (like uploading an image to their mosaic). The more actions, the more SAM-e will donate. You can find out more about the program using the link above and learn how your actions lead to SAM-e donations!
So what do I think after taking this for a while- it's still too dang hot and I am still having to deal with tons of crap (much more than usual, Ken's barely worked all summer, can't drive and it looks like this will be our lives for the forseeable future until/unless the drs can get him back on track. And all things considered, I think I'm doing really really well (I NEED my alone time, and having a husband with me 24/7 makes me crazy on a long weekend). I won't say it doesn't bother me, I will say that I am not freaking out about things that would usually be making me crazy.
My family MIGHT not totally agree, but compared to how I've taken bad news in the past and how I'm rolling with this, SAM-e might just do what it says.
I have not been taking it long enough to say without a doubt that this is why I'm coping the way I am - about two weeks, but I will say there are no side effects that I've noticed and I am definitely going to finish up the supply and see how things go.
