Thanks, don't need them myself but the dog needs them and 1000mg should be about the right dosage too for him, he's a big dog, lol
He's only just under 2 years old but has had stiff legs for pretty much the whole time we've had him and these help a great deal :)

There is no medical evidence that glucosamine sulphate works, pain reduction is probably due to placebo effect.

NICE, who advise NHS practitioners, state bluntly:
When a person presents with osteoarthritis, do not prescribe chondroitin/glucosamine products.

My Mum was prescribed it by her GP and even a arthritus specialist recommended it to her.

Works really well and very much doubt it is due to any placebo effect as she knows when she hasnt taken it as the joints remind her!

Was it prescribed before 2008? The only glucosamine product licensed for NHS is glucosamine hydrochloride (which doesnt work), not glucosamine sulphate (also doesnt work)
NICE now recommend that it is not prescribed for arthritis sufferers as some very large clinical trials have presented results showing glucosamine sulphate is no better than placebo for pain relief and does nothing to repair cartilage.
As for your 'arthritis specialist' are you sure he was a medical doctor and not some pill-peddling alternative-medicine con artist?

By the way, if you are going to use these dubious tablets, then take one and a half once a day. Why they make them in 1000mg preparations is beyond me

I guessed you where a Doctor, as normally they know **** all.

Funny how tens of thousands of Bodybuilders around the world NEED these eh? And you'll never get a Placebo effect with pain in the knees and elbows too, dumbass.

Doctors also love taking bonuses for not sending people to hospitals, and love the pointless BMI system.

Well done on learning nothing in Medical School.

Seems to me that research has not really shown any discernible benefits are to be gained. However, there are many anecdotes to be found that seem to suggest that some do apparently feel some benefit. So nothing ventured, nothing gained. I am giving it a go because I am fed up taking prescribed medications that offer nothing in terms of relief, and offer plenty in the way of nasty side effects.
PS. I should note that I did try Glucosamine some years ago and did get some unwanted side effects, gave up after two days. Upset stomach was the problem. However, may have been coincidental, so giving it another go.

I have copy pasted abstract and conclusion from a November 2008 BMJ article:

BNF 10.1.5
Glucosamine for knee osteoarthritis – what’s new?
Glucosamine is a natural substance that has been widely used for several years as a food supplement to treat
people with osteoarthritis.
1 One formulation of ▼glucosamine hydrochloride (Alateris – Ransom) has recently
become the frst (and is currently the only) glucosamine product to be licensed as a medicine in the UK for
symptomatic relief of mild to moderate osteoarthritis of the knee. In 2002, we concluded that unlicensed “oral
glucosamine sulphate 1,500mg [daily] probably provides modest symptom relief in patients with osteoarthritis
of the knee and its effcacy appears similar to that of NSAIDs”.
1 Here we update our advice in the light of new
evidence and assess the place of the licensed glucosamine hydrochloride tablets.

Conclusion
There are no published trials of ▼Alateris, the frst and currently only glucosamine hydrochloride) to be licensed as a medicine the UK as a treatment for knee osteoarthritis.
Alateris should not be prescribed on the NHS until such evidence is available. Published evidence suggests that oral glucosamine sulphate (1,500mg once daily) provides
modest pain relief in knee osteoarthritis and appears to be relatively safe.
There are questions about the cost-effectiveness of glucosamine sulphate that make it dif-
fcult to advise prescribing such treatment on the NHS. Nevertheless, patients might wish to purchase and try glucosamine sulphate and the evidence suggests that this
is a [I]reasonable strategy
.
[/I]The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency recommends that patients on warfarin should not take glucosamine supplements, since
this combination makes bleeding more likely.

Well, if you can see a spelling mistake and then judge a WHOLE person out of it, you are, like I stated before, a dumbass.

Infact, I think the words "Dumb with own head up ****" fits you nicely.

Cannot believe you are a Doctor, you're not the one that killed Micheal Jackson are you?

Anyway, have fun with your Doctor's Degree, has done **** all hasn't it? What a waste of years, tut tut.

And just to mention I did order some. thanks for the post.

P.S. I researched when I thought this might be a placebo equivalent. But I can confidently say that's not the case and just to mention I did find papers saying it isn't effective but this one being from our very own BMJ (British Medical Journal) group, I think I can rely on it.

Great post, nice to see someone using real evidence to back their point up.
As you have seen for yourself, the evidence for glucosamine sulphate use is patchy, conflicting and inconsistent.
The current scientific consensus, however, is that glucosamine is not effective in management of osteoarthritis. It has been studied rigorously with many high-quality placebo-controlled trials and just hasnt proved to be as effective as we may hope it to be.
It seems arthritis is just too complex a condition to be cured with pills.

Just when I thought you couldn't get any more incoherent and rabid; you prove me wrong.
You are the least impressive person I've ever seen on HUKD- and there's a lot of competition for that title.

Well, I agree it's conflicting but not patchy or inconsistent. I can say there is evidence from both ends but my point in a situation like this where patient hears from family and friends of drug's efficacy (and possible placebo effect) plus (some) evidence then it might produce better results than a placebo.
As a doctor you are better conversant with psych of patients than me.
