I have used this supplement to excellent effect for both humans and dogs. Our 16 year old dog (not subject to the placebo effect) showed demonstrable to shocking improvements- even jumping onto couches that she'd not attempted for years! I tested this supplement for solubility- it dissolves beautifully and I believe that the absorption potential is far better than most on the market. I especially appreciate the 500/tablet dosing- allows me to give an appropriate dose without overdosing (check with your DVM for appropriate dosing for your dog). For myself- pharmacology and chemistry show that three doses/day are more effective than once/day with regard to absorption, so these are far superior to horse-tabs for humans. As for those who feel mislead/deceived- quit blaming drugstore.com and Schiff for your irresponsibility & inability to read a label. It's clearly stated, and you ALWAYS have to read how many tabs to take whenever you take a new supplement. It's not rocket science, it's common sense- use it.

These coated tablets made a small difference after about a month of taking them. Since I don't take glucosamine all year round (usually when my joints start to act up), I don't like products that take forever to start working. They DID work though after a while, hence the 2 stars. I looked elsewhere and found that Movexa works feakin awesome for me. It took a week to kick in and is produced in capsules rather than coated tablets, which apparently works better. So at the very least, if you've had the same problem, look for glucosamine in capsule form.
My physician recommended taking this glucosamine supplement when I noted my knee discomfort. Part of me feels that the supplement helps but the benefits appear to be on the lower side of my expectations.
Taking three tablets daily so while the costs of the bottles is not exorbitant, will continue to seek out a lower cost equivalent.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
This is the HCL version, known to be superior to the sulphate version, and more expensive. 1500MG daily is by consensus the proper dose, and is accepted as an effective counter to arthritic joint problems. Works well for me. But single pills of 1500MG are impossible to swallow, so these 500MG pills require 3 pills per day. This product lable claims 1500MG, and in much smaller print admits the need for 3 tablets. So the package contains only 50 doses. This is a super product, but there may be cheaper sources.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
– A healthy diet and exercise can work to keep your body in top condition, but sometimes additional help is needed. Schiff Glucosamine coated tablets may help with joint discomfort. Ask your doctor if this supplement may be beneficial for you.
