About a yr ago I started having some pain and lots of stiffness in both knees/legs in the evening. (I had been walking 4 miles per day/6 days a week for yrs) I kept the walking going because I was quite addicted to it. Seriously. Then in Feb. I started to have alot of pain all the time and could barely walk up and down the stairs. Scrubbing floors was almost impossible. I finally caved and went to see my doc. He recommended I get chiropractic treatment on my knees. Now I've been to the chiro for things before, sometimes it helped (hip) other times not so much (low back). But this was unbelievable!! It took only 4 sessions and I've gone from a pain level of 7 to practically nothing! I have not resumed my walking routine although once the weather cools off I'm going to be at it again. And somehow in the last 5 months I've dropped 12+ lbs without dieting. I'm sure that's helping with the knees also.

You are welcome Retire2014! Concerning side effects, the only thing I had a problem with was insomnia when I tried taking it at bed time so now I only take it in the morning. Nature Made actually mentions that side effect on their we site.

Weekend? What's that?

My pleasure Retire2014. That's the beauty of this forum. You share things about your life, and maybe, just maybe there's something in there that helps another person. It's happened to me time and time again - someone else's experience helping me. On the sharing end, it makes you feel worthwhile; on the receiving end - total gratitude.

Best of luck Retire2014!
