> Bleauberry, the one concern I have is I have been diagnosed with bipolar 3(antidepressant induced mania). Sam-e states on the box not to use if you are bipolar.

I think I mentioned other things besides just SAMe?

They have to say that on the box. It does not mean that someone who has been labeled bipolar is going to have a reaction. I have seen people get calm and relaxed on SAMe, when they should have been hyped up instead. You just never know. If there is a risk of a reaction, no matter how small the risk, they have to say that on the label to protect themselves legally from you sueing them.

Anything that impacts the nervous system in any way carries a risk of a reaction. No matter what it is. No matter whether it is labeled or not. There is always risk. I'm not saying ignore the label and go try SAMe. I am saying that if you do it, approach it gently as you should with any substance. Cut a pill in halves or quarters. Any substance you take...med, herb, food...deserves respect.

You certainly cannot go by what something says on a box. And in my opinion, you certainly can't go solely on a subjective unprovable untestable unexplainable unduplicatable vague thing as a word called "bipolar". That means absolutely nothing to me. It is a term to describe a set of symptoms that could also be something else.

So ok, rule out SAMe. The list has no shortage of other options. You want some natural mood stabilizers to go with your AD? There are some good ones.
