Actimet SAM-e is as effective at treating patients with Major Depressive Episode as Rx antidepressant imipramine, and causes fewer adverse events, Teodoro Bottiglieri, PhD, Baylor University Medical Center, reports at Congress of Neuro Psycho Pharmacology July 13. The double-blind, multi-center trial provided 281 subjects with either 1,600 mg SAM-e per day or 150 mg imipramine daily. After six weeks, 50.3% of participants in the SAM-e arm responded to treatment compared to 57% in the imipramine arm. Actimet is found in GNC, Vitamin World, Pharmavite's Nature Made and NBTY's Puritan's Pride SAM-e products
