glucosamine for christmas

i have been having a lot of knee pain lately- riding a pedicab is pretty rough on your knees. having read all the things people have said about Glucosamine Hydrochloride, i decided i should give it a try. Glucosamine is expensive, so when my family asked what i want for christmas, i just said "glucosamine". well, i opened three different bottles- it was pretty funny! i think maybe i'm a little too into riding bikes!

anyone else out there on the information super highway have any experience with this? our web guy's surgeon says it works for about half the people that try it. it takes a few weeks to get into your system, so i'll report back with my own experience in about a month!
stay tuned...

ps this is what our web guy had to say

some additional knowledge from my surgeon- glucosamine/chondroiton works in about 50% of people- definitely worth a shot if you can afford it- so if you quit smoking, there you go! asshole... but, you probably won't notice much of a difference until you've been taking it daily for 3-4 weeks... so don't skip a dose
