Cosamin DS (Glucosamine Hydrochloride/Chondroitin Sulfate)

Cosamin DS Description

Cosamin DS is an over-the-counter joint health dietary supplement that is thought to help people dealing with osteoarthritis. Cosamin DS contains Glucosamine hydrochloride and Chondroitin sulfate, which are naturally found in your body so there is less risk for any adverse reactions to taking this joint care supplement. The sooner you start treatment, the less permanent damage to your joints.

OTC Pain Relief for Osteoarthritis

Glucosamine has the important job of making the essential building blocks of your ligaments, cartilage, and synovial fluid so your joints move easily. Chondroitin sulfate is a chemical found in the cartilage that helps cushion your joints as you move.

Cosamin DS (double strength joint care) may be taken with another medication to relieve the swelling and inflammation. There is no need for a prescription but you should consult a doctor or pharmacist to make certain Cosamin DS is right for you.

About Osteoarthritis and Risk Factors

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a joint disease that causes cartilage to break down and bones begin to rub against each other. Most commonly affected are hips, knees, hands, feet, and spine. As this condition progresses, small growths can form inside the joints and can break off and float around causing pain and swelling.

There are several risk factors for developing OA, including increasing age, being overweight, genetics, and repeated injury to your joints from playing rough sports or working. There is no cure for osteoarthritis, but you may find relief with Cosamin DS.

Before You Take Cosamin DS

Certain allergies and medical conditions may react negatively with the ingredients of Cosamin DS so before you embark on any treatments or therapies that involve taking over the counter supplements, talk to your doctor first as there are some conditions that could interfere or complicate your situation. Discuss other OTC meds and Rx drugs you are taking, including herbal and vitamin supplements with your doctor or pharmacist to determine if Cosamin DS is safe for you.

Important Information Regarding Cosamin DS

You should not take Cosamin DS if you are undergoing treatment with Warfarin (Coumadin) as this can cause you to bleed more easily. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding your baby as Glucosamine Hydrochloride/Chondroitin Sulfate may not be advised to take at this time. If you are diabetic, monitor your blood sugar as Cosamin DS can increase your levels.
