OTC med TRIPLE FLEX helps my Fibromayalia pain
smiles930 posted:
I take an over the counter joint suppliment called TRIPLE FLEX made by Nature Made. You can get them at WalMart. It contains glucosamine hydrochloride, chondrotin complex and hyaluronic acid. Dosage: 2 pills a day; at one time or separately. It works best for me to take both of them early in the morning.

Hello Smiles....and welcome......MiMi in NC....I wanted to comment....I, too, take joint I have had 4 right knee surgeries....due to an accident I had back in the 80's at the Atlanta Airport.....I have found that Osteo By-Flex is hard to is triple strength also....has glucosamine Chondroitin and MSM and is a joint shield formulat with 5-Loxin.....I also have to take 2 a day....I have no idea why it is better ....but I think I have perhaps tried it all and I find this to do so much better for me.....

As we all know though....we are all different....and what helps one may or may not help another....I do encourage you though to give it a try.....I hate having knee pain....I have also had the synvisc injections several times in my knees....which also help me....

Take care and good luck....thanks for sharing....

IN GOD WE TRUST....MAY GOD BLESS AND GUIDE AMERICA.... My personal exchanges are Vitamin D and Pain and Wrath of the Dragon....if you care to visit..

Hello Smiles and MiMi,
Are your joints more fluid in movement, or less pain? Does it help with the morning stiffness?
Just wondering what type of relief you're getting?
Thanks for thr tip.
Hope everyone has a good day,
Annmarie :)

Ever try Elations...a drink with those same ingredients....
MagPrincess replied to BEACHAHOLIC's response:
I tried elations. I really did notice a difference in joint mobility and less acheness. I however could not afford them and they of course upset my stomach.

I take jarrow formula's Joint builder. It has the glucosamin condrition with MSM and my favorite part is it also has 1000 units of vitamin D!!!!

I take one capsule in the am and one in the PM.

BEACHAHOLIC replied to MagPrincess's response:
Thanks Erin..I couldn't afford it either, but based on this thread I might start another supplement. My Endo has me on Neevo(a pre natal vitamin)because it is easy on the tummy and also helps with my truly does not bother my tummy, even on an empty stomach..
Thanks for sharing, and have a good one,
Annmarie :).
