Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Hi! Because Same E is not evaluated by the FDA, we have very limited information on this supplement. However, based on the information we do have available, Sam E is safe to use with your disease states and medications.

Do you have any further questions or concerns about Sam E? I am happy to help:)

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
