any of you use glucosamine chondroitin with good results?

Yup, after suffering for several years with achey knees, I started taking Glucosamine/Chondroitin twice a day and now my knees don't bother me at all. When my dog's arthritic joints flared up, I started him on it too. It's good stuff.

Now if you're talking about gout, you want to use cherry juice. That works much quicker, but only works for gout, won't give any relief for arthritis pain.

Cherry juice has helped me. I can close my hands easily now and flex my elbows enough to fix my own necktie.

mud, I have been taking Glucosamine HCL, but I avoid the Chondrotin because I learned that the later chemical has an adverse affect on a man's prostrate. I just take plain Glucosamine HCL, found at most Walmarts. hth

You know Mr. Mud, if youself are experiancing difficulty getting out of bed in the morning due to stiffness and pain, might I suggest an old remedy. Place a very heavy sheet of plywood upon your mattress, that has many many long nails pounder through it from bottom to top. You will never have problem getting out of bed after that I must say.

Yes I take 2 caps every day. Really helps my knees. Every doctor I have ever talked to about it says it is effective in 60% of the people that take it.

Mud, I have used Glucosamine Sulfate since 98. I was hunting a surgeon when I happened to get some advice to try this. I don't have to be reminded to take it. It has helped me tremenduously. I don't even have twinges now that I am on. I asked my doctor after I had been on it for 2 weeks. He said,"It's good stuff." He also told me to take it at least for 3 months before giving up on it and I told him that after 2 weeks I was already better. He told me that I had responded exceptionally well. My pharmacist also told me that he takes it every day. My brother said that he had better results with your product rather than the sulfate. I guess it depends upon the individual.

found out i have arthritis in one of my knees its starting to eat away at the bone so i happened on the glucosamin by accident. i took it as directed for about 3 months now i take it only when my knee acts up really bad. works great as far as im concerned.

Hi Mud, I've used that product (get it from,) for about a year: Tore the cartledge
in my knee, had surgery (a joke) and it continued to
get worse. (seemed to be loose, didn't want to stay
"in joint" well) I started taking glucosomine powder
YUK!!! then found the capsules. Knee seems much
"tighter" now, still have to be careful of it but is
not nearly as bad is it was. I would recomend it.

between cortizone shots and naproxen i get by. my surgeons said a few years back that i would be taking loratabs and a muscle relaxer 3 times a day for the rest of my life, i was off of those with in days after my last surgery.

sorry to hear it. work or car accident?

Betty    Posted 12-13-2004 at 07:18:19       [Reply]  [Send Email]
Worked great for my dog, but found out for myself, stay away from MSG or any food with preservatives. I hurt so bad and get sick from those things. MSG is the worst. aspirin or advil help. naprosyn bad for the stomach.
