My husband, former linebacker, has osteolysis in his collarbone and also slipped disks in his back. Can he take glucosamine and calcium together?
Yes: Yes. I would divide your calcium supplement to be taken with meals. Depending on diet, I will often recommend 500mg with breakfast and dinner. I also recommend calcium citrate or a chelated form of calcium to avoid stomach issues and for good absorption. You might also consider Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol). I routinely recommend 2, 000 IU per day but get a lab level and discuss with your dr. ...Read more
There is no specific: ...contraindication to taking these two supplements in the same 24 hour period. 1800 mg of calcium is 2x higher than the total recommended from food and supplements. Taking calcium supplements WITH food increases their absorption. At high doses, calcium can cause digestive problems. It's important to stay hydrated when taking calcium supplements of any kind.

Glucosamine: Glucosamine may help with the osteoarthritis pain at a dose of 1500 mg daily. The calcium will not help with either the bursitis or osteoarthritis.

Can you take glucosamine, chondroitin, hylanuric acid, prilosec, multivitamin, vitamin d, and calcium citrate together?
Is it safe to take Prilosec, glucosamine, msm, chondroiton, chlorophyll, calcium citrate, multi vitamin, and vitamin d together and daily?
That is a big load of meds.
Some, such as Vitamin D, do not need a prescription or blood test. Over-the counter vitamin D is inexpensive and does not need a prescription. Even better it is already in your milk and you don't really need to buy Vitamin D separately.
Do you really need all the others?
Look up "NuVal" on the web and see what foods are best for you rather than meds. ...Read more
Is it safe to take glucosamine, chondroitin, msm, vitamin d, calcium citrate, multivitamin, l arginine, l lysine, l ornthinine, Prilosec together?
Should be fine:
I don't see any significant problems taking all of these supplements. If you have any side effects, however, it may be a challenge to know which is the culprit. Typically, side effects from these are minimal or not existent.
If you are taking the prilosec due to the others causing GI complaints, you may want to reconsider this strategy. ...Read more

Are there any interactions between nutritional supplements like a good multivitamin, fish oils, calcium/magnesium, or joint support like glucosamine?
Of course, complex &: Controls are internal but only partially understood. As Soul↔Mind↔Brain↔Body creatures, not invented by MDs, issues only partially understood. Thus people promote importance of simple external things they can sell, often without consideration of individual situation or any relevant double-blind, prospective placebo controlled clinical trial data. Why? Because trials are expensive & might backfire? ...Read more

My back aches when I take 1500mg of glucosamine, but now the pain was gone. What could be happening in my back?
Impossible to say: It is very unlikely that taking the glucosamine caused your back pain. But while it has some support for help in knee arthritis, glucosamine generally doesn't help back pain at all. At your age, a strain from activity likely caused your back pain and, as expected, it has healed itself. Walking and back stretching and strengthening exercises may be helpful to prevent recurrences. Stay well:) ...Read more
It is not known yet: The best dose of glucosamine is not known. Most research studies have used doses of 1, 200 to 1, 500 mg per day, usually in two or three separate doses. Because supplement manufacture is more loosely regulated than drug manufacture and producers voluntarily follow good manufacturing practices, purchase glucosamine from a reputable supplier. ...Read more
You can, but...: Glucosamine & chondroitin might help w osteoarthritis pain; the american academy of orthopedic surgeons recommend against prescription of these for knee oa as a randomized controlled trial showed no benefit; there is no evidence at present to show they can prevent future joint problems; train intelligently to avoid injuries; you can try g/c, but note they will be of theoretical benefit. Good luck! ...Read more
Safe, but why?: I guess it would be safe, but I don't see the need. The studies have shown treatment benefit, but not preventive benefit. I wouldn't think someone under the age of 18 would have joint damage for which this would be helpful. ...Read more
