SAM-e... anyone using it?
So, on the advice of my neurologist, we have started supplementing Riley with SAM-e. Anyone else have experiences with this supplement?

Background: Riley is on Phenobarbital for epilepsy. The neuro recommended SAM-e for liver protection.

I am trying to remember what drugs should not be taken with the SAM-e. SAMe: MedlinePlus Supplements Serotonin syndrome - list on the link. Herbs and Supplements: MedlinePlus for others like that.

If affordable, I do love those Nutramax products: Dog Liver Health

I use regular milk thistle for my one dog but she's not on any meds.

In my signature you go to the IMOM site and there is someone there with 2 very brittle (whatever the word is) epi dogs, and I believe that she's used the SAM-e. Tucker and Justice.

Hi Wick!
The liver has many functions, but one is to remove toxins from the blood.
So, I use Milk Thistle or a Milk Thistle combo for a 2 to 3 week period after every dose of Heart Worm meds (which I give every six weeks) to cleanse/detox and support the liver and keep it healthy.

Here are two products I rotate with:
Super Milk Thistle:
Herbal Hepaclenz:
