In brief: Long term.

As far as we know, the combination of glucosamine and chondroitin is safe to use in the long term. Studies had people taking it for at least two years.

In brief: Indefinitely

Glucosamine is generally very safe for the long term. It can occasionally cause GI issues.
If you are diabetic, watch your glucose level as it may rise on glucosamine.
