THANKS FOR THE ADVICE. WE DON'T HAVE SHIFF HER BUT I'LL ASK MY PHARMASIST WHAT ONE IS GOOD.

I WILL SUCCEED BECAUSE I KNOW I CAN DO IT AND I AM MOTIVATED.

It's true that the longer you take it the more you notice the results but I started noticing a difference after only a couple of weeks. It's important not to give up if your results don't come that quickly though because everyone is different.

As a footnote: you need to take it for at least 6-9 months to tell if it will work. Don't miss a day, it will only hinder your results.

Every day I am on the verge of making slight changes that would make all the difference in my life.

Don't make todays choices be tomorrows regret

Since my arthritis pain is getting worse, I am ready to try glucosamine. Cosco, Schiffs, with MSM. Right! Thanks for the information.

CHRISTINASP - Good idea to do your own research, just be sure your sources are good. I'm a retired Biology teacher and at one point had training on how to recognize a reliable internet source. There are a lot out there that are not. If you wonder if it's a good source or would like something you don't understand explained in an easier to understand way I'd be happy to help if you'd like.

Thank you! Whitneyteacher, tha'ts very interesting. I read the thread you linked to and I'm now searching the internet for more information about MSM and SAMe in my own language.

Keep it simple.

I am using it and have for 2 years, got it from my Ortho MD, It has taken the edge off the pain, knee still hurts but the pain isn't as bad.

Every day I am on the verge of making slight changes that would make all the difference in my life.

I use Schiff brand Glucosamine with MSM. About a year ago I was looking at the display in Costco and a little old lady with very obvious arthritis stopped to ask me if I was thinking about buying it. She told me she had been using it for years and wouldn't be without it. Based on her recommendation I bought some and I agree with her, I seem to have less arthritis flare ups since I have been taking it. I have a friend who told me to try Costco brand Glucosamine with Chondroitin and, since it was a little cheaper, I switched. I don't know what the difference in adding MSM (whatever that is) or Chondroitin but, for me, the cheaper one with Chondroitin did NOT work! I could tell the difference after about 2 weeks, my joints started hurting more often and more intensely so I switched back to the Schiff brand and after another couple of weeks it got better again. I also found some interesting information about a product that, according to verifiable medical research has been found to repair cartilage, which leads to less pain. I wrote a post about it in February called, "SAMe - Report shows cartilage repair and less pain." If you're interested in reading it, here's the link:
