There is a $5 coupon in last Sunday's paper for Schiff Move Free -- add another $5 coupon (search here - http://www.couponsurfer.com/) and you get two bottles for $19.99 (Walgreen's has them @ 2 bottles for $29.99) - even better, the Walgreens I went to had the bonus size (80 + 26 tablets -- 33% more). These have always worked on my athritis and aches and pains - good luck to you.

Chondroitin No Help for Arthritis Pain

Although I've been taking the stuff for years, I'm probably going to stop after I finish my current supply to see if I see any difference.

Costco has this for about the same price but a larger bottle. It is a regular on their dollar off coupons.

Here is the NIH study from last year. It showed benefits for those with moderate to severe arthritic pain.

When the study concluded, here is what the researchers found:

Looking at the group of participants as a whole, there were no significant differences between any of the supplements tested and the placebo.

For participants with mild pain, glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate alone or together did not provide significant relief compared with placebo.

For a small group of participants with moderate-to-severe pain, glucosamine combined with chondroitin sulfate provided significant pain relief compared with placebo. However, because of this group's small size, the researchers noted that this finding should be considered preliminary and needs to be confirmed in further studies.

Participants taking celecoxib experienced significant pain relief, as expected, compared with placebo. Celecoxib also provided faster relief than any of the supplements (when the supplements provided relief).

All I know is that I've experienced back, hip, and knee pain for years, and nothing helped - including prescription meds. Then I started Move-Free, and I've felt better than I have in years. I'll keep taking it as long as it continues to help me!

Thanks, OP - I got 2 boxes (the 33% more boxes, too!) and used the 2 $5 off coupons, and only paid $19.99!!

mgreen2 typed: [Q]Participants taking celecoxib experienced significant pain relief, as expected, compared with placebo. Celecoxib also provided faster relief than any of the supplements (when the supplements provided relief).However, the difference is that supposedly the glucosamine is repairing your joints, while the Celecoxib is just masking the pain.

I've been taking glucosamine for a while, and it seems to be working, but not in the way it's tested... I notice the difference when I DON'T take the glucosamine, this is when my joints hurt. I was having problems with the chondroitin, such as thinning my blood and making it difficult to sleep, so I'm on the glusamine only.

My doctor recommended Move Free for my knee pain instead of seeking treatment <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif" border=0> and now I don't remember what knee pain is <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif" border=0>
