glucosamine/chondroitin

I have been reading how this helps a great deal. Years ago I use to buy this for nothing. Yesterday I went to k-mart and it was like $38.00 and I almost died when it rang up. I did xl the order because I was shocked.
Is this the going price now because it seems to be popular today?
I guess we can't say much about products here but there must be cheaper
bottles of this stuff out there that are good. Any ideas would be helpful.

Re: glucosamine/chondroitin

Hi Sunshine,

I have Osteoarthritis in my knees (I'm 46 & had a TKR 6/07) & lumbar area, RA, fibro, connective tissue disease, diabetic, and Lupus. I have taken Glucosamine/Chondroitin for 10 plus yrs and have benefited greatly from it in the past. Because of severe chronic pain I have had in the past 2 yrs my Rheumy has me taking 3000mg of just Glucosamine daily along with many medications. With having to work a full time job I will take any little bit of relief that I can...lol.

The price you paid sounds expensive to me unless it's a huge bottle. It is very popular today & from the consensus it helps a lot of people, then some it doesn't. You just have to try it & make sure you use it faithfully to see if you benefit from it. Personally I can't wait to take it each day.

As far as the costs goes, I don't know where you live or the count in the bottle that you bought. Here in Mich this is what I pay for 150 count, 2000mg ea gelcap of glucosamine at Wallmart is $11, which will last me 50 days taking 3 per day. We also have Sams club here in Mich that is a good place to buy it but you have to be a member.
Hope this helps
Take Care!

Re: glucosamine/chondroitin

Hi Roses,
I thank you for your post, I live in Fla and we have plenty of Walmarts and Sams clubs so I am going to try and get there today. I have read many of your posts so I wish your pain to be less. I can't work anylonger because my legs won't do it.
Thank you for your help. I can try it at $11.00 and hope for the best..
Sunshine
