  1. Doctor are there any side effects for taking glucosamine supplements to counter knee osteroporous
    Taking 1500mg solution form for 1 month and then another 500 mg for another 3-4months.
    If the knee pain does not improve do I continue or
    any other alternative way for remedy.
    Please advise and amny thanks
    Doctor2008: Two side-effects worth remembering is allergy and a tendency to make diabetes worse. Whether glucosamine and chondriotin are effective is still being debated, but generally, if there is no improvement after 3 months, most doctors will cease treatment.

  2. If taking the supplement works do I continue taking or can I stop it completely.
    I really do appreciate your kindness in answering our queries. Thanks
    Doctor2008:If it works, then there’s no cut-off point that has been proven. So I guess,indefinitely.
