Well, it doesn't give a definitive answer. My orthopedist said it was good only if you have stock in the company. Interesting how it's a prescription drug in Europe, though. Anybody decided one way or another? Why?

I've seen too many people come in barely able to walk because of arthritis, start on Glucosamine/Chondroitin/MSM and within 1 month, be able to walk properly again. You may wanna find a 2nd and even 3rd oppinion my friend.


#3

Yes. I've decided that glucosamine chondrotion works. Why? Because it works for me. If it's only in my head, then it's still getting the job done.


#4

Yup. My elbow has been fine since I started using it.


#5

works for me.

knees feel better,elbows feel better.

i know the chance for a placebo effect exists but i have something happen that convinces me it's the real deal.
the middle finger on my left hand.when not using glucosamine/chondroitin that finger locks in place when i make a fist upon rising.it goes away as the day progresses.when i use the stuff it goes away all together.
