You could take the medications for a few months or years in the recommended doses, unless there is a specific contraindication to their use. You may discuss this with your treating doctor.
Hope this helps.
I take this supplement called JOINTSNKNEES , for my osteoarthritis . Its been really helpful , as i felt great relief in a very short period of time. Amongst all the supplements i took i found this most effective . It has green lipped mussels and 5 Loxin which is supposed to be great for joint pain and arthritis.
Amber I ordered jointsnknees a month back after doing some research on it , and I'm happy that it combines a lot of ingredients as opposed to most supplements which only have one ingredient. So it sure helped ne save a bundle.
Talking about the effectiveness of jointsnknees , I found it pretty effective . My pain has reduced considerably in this last one month.
