Hi there --
Welcome to Just Answer.
MSM is a sulfur supplement - that is used for homeopathic treatment of various joint and skin problems.
The dosage is 50 mg per 10 pounds. So this may be adequate.
thank you, XXXXX XXXXX take it with her other meds, or play it by ear it the msn seems to be helping get her off other drugs
There is not a great deal of reserach on this supplementation with other medications. But it appears to be safe and use of this supplement with the medications listed does not appear to be a problem.
Also -- excess MSM is excreted and does not appear to cause any issues.
It has some mild antiinflammatory effects
Glucosamine is another joint supplement to trial.
thank you, XXXXX XXXXX to take it for myself, RA, and it was helping but got off of it, had a bad flare up yeasterday, wound up a ER for cortisons shot and made up my mind to get on it again when I was reading dogs could take it too
But your adequan injections have this covered --- if you choose to leave the injections, the oral form may be helpful.
