Does anyone know if there is a reason not to take Glucosamine while on prednisone currently 10mg tapering, azathiaprine or Lialda? I do a lot of sports that are hard on the body 3-5 times a week wakeboarding, motocross jumping on trampoline etc. I want to start taking Glucosamine to help with my joints and prevent injury. I think I have read that it can actually help with UC as well but I couldn't find anything that said if it interacted with the drugs I am currently on.
Diagnosed October 07, Flared from October until now off and on. Currently under control with Prednisone 15mg per day and tapering, just started Azothiaprene 100mg a day two, Lialda 4 pills daily. Taking at night helps with the side effects of the Azothiapene.
