Glucosamine

Glucosamine is perhaps the most commonly recognized joint supplement. Its popularity grew and grew out of research done in the 1980s.

Glucosamine is an aminosugar and is a precursor to glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) which are a component of connective tissues like cartilage. It is thought that by supplementing the body with glucosamine, GAG synthesis will increase.

There are 2 forms of glucosamine you can take orally: sulfate and hydrochloride. Most GAGs in the body are sulfated.

    I take a number of medications. What, if any, are the interacions among the drugs – any medication prescribed or not – between the Glucosamine HCI 1500 and MSM and other medications whether presciption or OTC medications. Can you prescribe a wem site that provides this information. I have access to Mesdscape that lists intetractions but it usually only deals with prescription medication interactions. Thank you
