MSM 1000mg: is a low dose if taken daily. There are some patients that notice a change in their menstruation cycles when taking this...usually it is a skipped period or a lighter one. Fish oil, Vit C and MSM are all excellent supplements to take as long as they don't interact with any other meds you may be on. With any ankle surgery I typically have my patients taking similar dosing before and after!
