Naproxen is a lot better than Diclofenac but stirs your stomach up so need to take it with food.

I am a 21 year-old man. I also take glucosamine and calcium supplement.
One each pill per a day after a meal (I think one pill is good enough for my age.)
Never take any drugs with empty stomach- specially this joint pill I believe has quite bit of acid.
I think the soreness on my knees, feet and ankles goes away quicker.
I have not heard of any side-effect from taking it, if you do not have any problem with blood.
You may need to talk to a doctor if you have a problem with blood.
I don't recommend the joint supplement to anyone younger than 21.
I heard a body can reproduce the enough glucosamine by itself with well-balanced nutrition.
My injury test technician recommended me first. I have a neck and shoulder problem.
usually pain killer have a chemical-ibrofene, to relax the muscle. My joint supplement does not have a pain killer sort of chemical.

Yes I would, but I am not a doctor or medical related professional.
The amount may vary for your age and your condition.
Make sure you don't have any allegies on that the supplement contains.
I am currently taking one each pill of glucosamine and calcium per a day to prevent injury.
I make sure taking it after breakfast before I am going to play badminton later in that day and also take a day after I played badminton.
I am 21 old man, taking one pill of glucosamine supplement which has 1000mg of glucosamine hydrochloride and 3.3mg of hyaluronic acid.

Talking about Glucosamine. I took Viatril 1500mg daily and it induced very bad asthma type wheezing. FYI I dont have asthma.
So I took Flexa 1500mg and guess what, no side effect at all. It is basically the same active ingredients. I was probably allergic to some filler material in Viatril.
FYI, in case anyone encounters this.

i have just started taking tramal 50mg pill or tramadol as more commonly known. It is a kind of pain killer for the nerve pains. My doctor told me to just take a low dose of 50mg on the day I play badminton. It definitely has made my badminton session much more bearable ever since. All the pains over my body were almost entirely gone. I have not experienced any side effect of the drug but still afraid for any long term effect of using this.

All Painkillers will have side effects with long usage and so it is better to avoid them wherever possible. You can read more on the side effects in Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tramadol

Trust me, never take painkillers to play.
I did that and now after 3 years my cartilage is busted.
Only option left is the super expensive unproven stem cell treatment.
Regret not listening to the body and toning down when I had the chance.

Not sure if it's good for joints but I take CherryActive tablets which helps muscle soreness and recovery. It also comes in juice concentrate form. Read about it being recommended by a premier league clubs nutritionalist.

For joints I would recommend Animal Flex. I just bought 3 tubs of that. A collection of all the best joint supplements in one place.
Animal Flex has 44 packets (each packet contains 8 pills)
