I too have been looking for what supplements are safe to help with this. I am currently taking SAM-e with B vitamins to help with joint pain and inflammation. I can’t seem to get anyone including my doctor to tell me if this is “ok.”
I don’t want to overstress my liver and still take a couple of 5 mg per day of pain meds to control pain. I hate taking them because I’m well aware of the dangers. I was taking 3 per day and regret asking my doctor to lower them to 2 now that winter is here. Anything that could lesson pain and safely would be awesome! Hope you get an answer from someone. The SAM-e has literally saved my life and studies show it to out perform celebrex after 4 weeks but then again, what the heck is safe that really works on the pain?? For depression it’s a lifesaver and does lower joint pain when the pain is somewhat bearable………..
If SAMe helped you that much you might really want to get a 23andme test. Read my threads on methylation.
