Glucosamine and Ibruprofin

Glucosamine + Ibuprofin
From ScienceDaily: “The nutritional supplement glucosamine boosts the pain relieving power of ibuprofen, according to a new study by Temple University researchers in the Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics (JPET). Ronald Tallarida, Ph.D., and Alan Cowan, Ph.D., of Temple’s School of Medicine, and Robert Raffa, Ph.D., of Temple’s School of Pharmacy, conducted the study “Antinociceptive Synergy, Additivity, and Subadditivity with Combinations of Oral Glucosamine Plus Nonopioid Analgesics in Mice,” which was published in the November 2003 issue of JPET.”
Glucosamine is taken by older athletes (including the author) for its clinically-demonstrated benefits to soft-tissue health and bone repair. Ibuprofin is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), sold under its generic name or as Advil. (1/8/04)
