Should be: With the limited information provided, this should be ok, however i feel it is always best to discuss with your primary care doctor so even over the counter medications like glucosamine chondroiton can be added to your medical profile, assuring there are no definitive contraindications. Good luck to you.

Yes: If you do take glucosamine make sure the dose is at least 1, 500 mg daily and give it a 3 month trial before deciding if it helps.
