If Any, Side Effects of Glucosamina Sulfate
Glucosamine Sulfate taken long term, is it possible that side effects, when being prescribed additional medicine, can result in searing pain in body muscle areas.
Glucosamine is not associated with muscle pain as a side effect, either alone or with other medications. Be advised that glucosamine is not an FDA-approved product that undergoes clinical and quality testing to guarantee effectiveness and safety of the medication. Products labeled as glucosamine sulfate may not contain the labeled amounts of glucosamine or may not contain glucosamine at all.
