Taking glucosamine chondroitin, hyaluronic acid, collagen, resveratrol supplements for back. Will taking all these together create liver issues?

What is diagnosis?: That's always the most important place to start. Have you had an evaluation for cause of back pain with an allopathic doc, or a rheumatologist? Back pain in 28 year olds sometimes can be due to autoimmune arthritis, and the treatments available are far better than your current regimen. Glucosamine is a proven therapy, the rest are likely a waste of money. Consider getting a rheumatology opinion. ...Read more

Is it safe to take Prilosec, glucosamine, msm, chondroiton, chlorophyll, calcium citrate, multi vitamin, and vitamin d together and daily?

Multiple meds: 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.

Look up "NuVal" on the web and see what foods are best for you rather than meds. ...Read more
