The Now Glucosamine and MSM does seem to help my back quite a bit, without any side effects. I've tried MSM by itself, and it doesn't seem to maintain quite the same level of relief. I'm using it to help with a thin disc and a bit of arthritis in the lower back, at the base of the spine. I would say that the anti-inflammatory effects are also keeping the muscles from spasming when the area gets a little tweaked, which is something I was having a real problem with. From the info I've found on this topic, condroitin is not nearly as easily absorbed by the digestive system, so it's better to go with MSM and glucosamine, which are precursors of condroitin, and are much more readily absorbed.

I have spinal arthritis and some sciatic pain so I wanted to get a jump on things so I got this. After 1 capsule the pain in my hips was so bad I could barely move but even worse was it felt like the nerve in my leg had an electrical charge in it. I stopped them, maybe it was a fluke and a few weeks later tried again. Same thing. Not good for me.

Only taken for two weeks and hasn't made any difference yet. Suspect it's causing a little intestinal distress.
