  • N-acetyl glucosamine

    Has anyone tried N-acetyl glucosamine? I've seen it on several sites and it seems to be recommended quite often by holistic doctors. I'd love to hear if anyone has had some improvement with it, or has had any complications with it.

    I have no idea what this is but I did a search for you

      Thanks so much Tigger_gal! All additional info. is so helpful!

      Has anyone out there tried this? (N-acetyl glucosamine)

      I'm looking for some natural remedies in addition to traditional medicine.

      I follow an extreme IC diet. I'm on 75mgs. of Elavil, 300mgs Elmiron, 20mgs. of Hydroxyzine and still struggling with pain. (also had 8 weeks of rescue installations a couple months ago)

      I've done a lot of research on this remedy, but would love to know if anyone has tried it and had success.

      Thanks in advance for any updates. :-)
