I don't believe you will feel any different with that supplement. My understanding is that it "promotes joint health". This means that if it does work, you probably won't notice the benefits for a long time.

In which joints are you experiencing osteoarthritis?

Are you under the care of a doctor? If not, you should be. They may be able to help you better with the pain and with other therapies. If a doctor is monitoring you, they can also tell you when you need surgery.

yeah, have had a doctor visit. he was just wanting to give cortizone injections. he said it was only going to stop pain for a few months. i dont want all the side effects. i don't want to be paying them just to give me a shot. they always want treatments to get you coming back. i dont want surgery and dying in the operating room.

Sadly OA is not something that can be eliminated completely. The cortisone shots and other treatments compensate for degradation in your joints. Most people ultimately require some form of serious knee surgery like total or partial knee replacement. Many do very well after the surgery. The doctors often don't want to send you to knee surgery so fast because the artificial knees wear out too.

RE: RE: any OA benefits from glucosamine?

I tried the glucosimine a long time ago, but did not receive much relief as I remember. I also had the gel injections in both my knees. The injections would help for a period of time, but eventually the pain returned. So after trying different things, I had double knee replacement. No more pain. My back is a different story, because of inflammation, which may be what is causing your knee pain, I do not take pain pills. but there is something I take, which I have written about on this site, but you need to read my posting to get the name. I was excessive in talking about the product, though I just use it, with nothing else involved. I have used it for 10 years or so. It relieves the inflammation and the pain. Good luck.
