Maybe: I am not aware of taking hyaluronic acid by mouth. This is usually injected into knees with arthritis. Glucosamine may be helpful for some. I usually tell my patients to try it for about 10-12 weeks. If they do not notice a difference it is not helping and to stop it. Talk with your doctor about it.
