I can honestly say that I don't like taking *anything*... pain relievers, vitamins, supplements... I just don't like pills or capsules of any kind. I really don't know why, but on the rare occasion I have a headache, I'll just suffer through it. Maybe it's just pure stubbornness?
However, I did try Glucosamine/Chondroitin for the first time about 2 years ago on a high recommendation from a co-worker (total gym rat... probably to the extreme) for my minor knee pain. Anyway, I bought 2 bottles and was on the stuff for 2 months. I really didn't notice anything..... until about 3 weeks after they ran out and I stopped taking them. I kept thinking to myself, "why are my knees so sore". Finally I mentioned it to my wife and she reminded me that I took G/C for 2 months. Huh.... interesting.
I have done this on a couple of other occasions over the last 2 years, and I always end up buying another bottle or 2. Maybe I'm just one of the lucky few... or just insane.
