Glucosamine chondroitin how long to work

Common Questions and Answers about Glucosamine chondroitin how long to work


Avatar m tn I could tell you the amounts of Glucosamine and Chondroitin for your dog, (ie for a 50lb dog it's 1000mg Glucosamine and 400mg Chondroitin, add or subtract percentages according to your dog's weight) and also that Boswellia can be used as an anti-inflammatory for dogs, but am not sure about Yucca. It's probably fine, but dogs can't take everything that would be OK for horses. I wish I knew. Anyway I can bump up your post in case anyone can help you.
Avatar f tn I am thinking about trying macafem supplements and wondered if you have tried them and if you got an results? How long did it take to start working? I'm at the end of my rope and need to get some help fast! I'm currently 42 years old and started into menopause around the age of 38. I'm not sure if I have "normal" meno symptoms or not but I have been tested and that's what it is.
Avatar n tn I am truly amazed by the results. I have tried many over the counter Glucosamine/Chondroitin formulas to no avail. My mobility is already significanty better, and best of all I do not feel exhausted from being in pain all the time. I do not know what helps with pain relief in this formula. But I am extremely thankful. I can't find Flexprotex in my local drug store. I found it at an online store after seeing the commercial.
Avatar m tn they told me as well as my regular doctor they told me to relax and not worry. how can i not worry when your heart isnt suppose to do it. i just dont know what to do. i have them almost every minute sometimes several in a minute. how can that be normal. can anyone help me come to terms with these pvc's.
1358341 tn?1282213443 I guess it blocks some of the phosphorus and such so the kidneys do not have to work as hard . This capsules, for 3 months worth ran me about $54, not bad if you break it down for each month. Vets still live by the old standard of a prescription kidney diet which is low in protein and in phosphorus but more recent research indicates that too low of protein actually causes muscle wasting and supposedly shortens the life span of a CRF cat.(this is what I read so you be the judge).
Avatar f tn I use glucosamine, chondroitin, cod liver oil and ensure my diet contains oily fish. TENS doesn't work, heat does work to a degree and so I try to utilise this as much as possible, hydrotherapy is beneficial (but not to the bank balance!) and I also use swimming as a method of controlling pain (though I do suffer afterwards). So if anyone has any bright ideas be the natural remedies or prescribed then please let me know!
Avatar n tn Maybe a more productive way to look at post-tx issues and how we might best be able to return to a healthy, symptom-free life is this: It might be a good idea to find out what our forum members have been doing to overcome any post-tx problems they have encountered. Many of us have described problems with depression, pain, mental fogginess, lack of motivation, fatigue, neuropathy, sun sensitivity, rashes, etc. after ending therapy.
Avatar f tn Please please tell the doctor and anaethetist what you have been taking and what dose and for how long. I know you want to quit cause otherwise you wouldn't be frightened of the surgery - that's a good sign it tells you that you want to live - so be strong tell the doctor and get help. And heck if you have a cry when you tell the doctor - don't worry about it I do it all the time and it's better out than in. Remember everything you tell him stays in confidence.
Avatar f tn I need to find stuff that works to relieve the pain. I've tried pretty much everything...glucosamine/chondroitin (sp), prescription creams, non-prescription creams, ice, epsom salt baths, physical therapy, orthotic inserts for my shoes, ibuprofen, naproxen, etc etc etc. I am looking into trying acupunture next. SOMETHING to help me get to that next surgery. 5 weeks until my next appointment just seems like a lieftime away (even though I know it isn't). Please help...
5623238 tn?1371240837 -( I went to work and was worried about him all day. I rushed home and he was at the the top of his kitty condo (his favorite spot) He hasn't been up there for the past few days so I was happy to see him there. And he jumped down quickly, gave a little meow, and stretched and rolled like he used to whenever I get home from work. He was being very loving and I could tell he just wanted comfort. I checked his litter boxes and I found even bigger puddles of urine with barely any signs of blood!
Avatar f tn What I do know is that nerves do take a long time to heal, so I hope that is why this is taking so long to go away...I hope. Good luck to everyone. I will keep you posted.
Avatar m tn Yes , I will stick with the glucosamine , better safe than sorry. I´m glad that it helped your dog. I´m starting to massage him every day , soon. I´m reading agreat book by doctor Michael W. Fox. "The healing touch for Dogs" , it explains neatly how to do a proper massage. I was thinking also to buy an inflatable pool , but he hates swimming , but I guess a small inflatable pool would be less threatening that a regular pool. That would be great. I think he doesn´t have pain yet.
Avatar n tn It doesn't seem reasonable to me to put all one's hopes into a low-level intervention like oral glucosamine, which I agree can take up to six weeks to fully work (although sometimes it does work faster), if the dog now can't walk at all. A possibility of six weeks of waiting is too long and hard a time, for both you and the dog. I think you need a consultation with a vet, to see what all of your options are and to see what the vet recommends.
Avatar f tn I work in the ski industry in the winter. And ride and race 5-6 k miles from May to Oct. I have noticed my performance decrease with the progression of Hep C. I went from a consistent top 5 finisher to pack fodder. I am in week 16 of tx and skiing 5 runs wears me out. Looking forward to SVR and finding out what I can due with a healthier liver. Seeing as the liver converts food to energy I find it hard to believe one wouldn't perform better with a healthy liver.
Avatar n tn I can only tell you to find the best and keep asking questions...My son goes to Physical therapy 3xs a week to strengthen his muscles and i try to make him stay active...Staying still for a long time will cause more stiffnes.First Dr said PT wouldn't work but it does help...He was also given Neproxin to reduce swelling on the bone..Look into Herbal remidies also but ask your Dr..The lift in his shoe will help in time..When someone is limping all the time it causes stress on the body...
Avatar f tn They are very generalized based on how much a dog should need each day to maintain its body in good weight. What they don't (or can't really) take into consideration is how each dog is different. Some are easy keepers, needing very little food to maintain their body weight, while others might need almost twice the recommended daily ration to stay in good weight.
975514 tn?1325001538 The pain and fatigue is a real drag and the medication options out there are hard to juggle. It takes awhile to find a decent combo. How long have you been using the Tramadol? Do you think it's effective? Some people swear by it, and this is just my opinion and I am no doctor of course, but it actually caused me horrible migraines. I can't tolerate Tramadol. The Gabapentin was very effective for me with a combo of Diclofenac and an effective muscle relaxer.
Avatar m tn What are the risks of continuing to use it 12hour shifts? Thoroughly disgusted and wont be able to work much longer. I dont feel I can even get a second opinion because the insurance company is the bigger problem. At this point Im not even confident the doctor would "take me" off work if this gets any worse and much more of this and I'll lose my job. I cant work week after week depending on oxycodone to get through a shift.
Avatar f tn Hi. I have always been physically active and have never been overweight. There is no arthritis in my family and feel that for most of my life have eaten properly. I have arthritis in my hip.
1232362 tn?1333139006 NO NEVER give a cat aspirin in any amount!!!! for arthritis you need to use the Glucosamine/chondroitin MSM that I told you about before dear. the one on the market that is SAFE for cats is the brand NATURAL FACTORS called MSM JOINT FORMULA. this one has NO additives like soy and such that aren't good for cats. I use it for my Nemo not for arthritis but for urinary tract problems..
Avatar m tn I just know that my discs are never coming back, but I'm still able to work out every day. I'm sore and I can't lift heavy weight anymore, but I don't have to take any meds for it or get surgery, and that's what I was after. Hey, you've got nothing to lose by trying it but money. Good to hear from you. Hope you had a good holiday season.
159619 tn?1538184537 I had My First Synvisc Shot Last Week On Wed My Keen Still Has Pain & Still Is Swollen I Have Not Been Able To Stand To Long ,Or Walk To Much ,And Haven't Been Able To Return to work Because Of Pain, It Is Now Going Down My leg A Little , Not Sure If It Will Take Longer To Heel Because I'm A Diabetice .
Avatar n tn A tiny amount applied to the legs will result in a garlic taste on the tongue seconds later. That is how quickly it goes through the system. The industrial grade is unacceptable.
Avatar f tn Hello, I am very sorry about your dog! Your question is similar to the previous question about feline renal disease and is pertinent to your dog's condition. Shivering is a bad sign that is linked to kidney failure, unfortunately. Azodyl can cause digestive disturbances if introduced too quickly, in some cases. Azodyl is supposed to help the digestive system remove toxins that can no longer be filtered by the kidneys. The theory is sound.
1916673 tn?1420236870 You could also try using things like Dentistix and/or Tropiclean FreshBreath which work to soften tartar and plaque making it easier to remove. The blood results are going to be very important and will indicate how far the disease has gone. Do you or your vet have the prior results for comparison?
4307980 tn?1352568740 How old are the other two dogs and how long have you had them? Yes, hope you get her spay and not sure what you mean about her not having a normal cycle. Some females in heat will go off their food. Does she have a vaginal discharge? Any odor? Do you know how to take a rectal temp on a dog? This might tell you if something is brewing. Obviously, she is in pain and should probably be evaluated by a Vet and I hope this is not Dysplasia or an ACL problem.
Avatar n tn Can someone tell me about this testing process and how much it hurts?. Also how the surgey went if you got it. How long of a recovery was it for you, and do you still have pain? I really want to play the fall season of soccer and probably not get surgery untill the end of November. Can someone tell me how you managed the pain so you can still play? You input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Avatar n tn We have tried a number of pain relievers; one seems to work, but it makes him sleepy. We've also taken him to a holistic vet practitioner, where he received a chiropractic adjustment and some additional pain (herbal) medication. This treatment only worked for about two days. We give me massages with a heating pad daily. In short, he is always in some pain, but some days he seems to manage the pain well. Other days, it's very sad -- and on those days, I suspect the pain affects his appetite.
Avatar f tn I also take Lexapro (Escitalopram Oxalate 10 milligrams 1x daily) to elevate my mood, as well as a multivitamin/multimineral supplement, Acai Berry extract, B-Complex, a joint complex that consists of Glucosamine Chondroitin Complex (Glucosamine Hydrochloride, Chondroitin Sulfate, Methylsulfonylmethane, Vitamin C & Hydrolyzed Collagen), as well as a Magnesium/Zink/Calcium supplement.
Avatar m tn Anyone know how helpful Glucosamine sulphate and chondroitin supplements would be to my knee? Where would I purchase such products if they were to benefit me? Many thanks.
