My wife & I & several friends have had a great deal of relief & deminished symptoms after using Glucosomin & Chondroiton capsules . It takes from 30 to 45 days for noticeable benefits w/NO bad side affects (only good ones) My wife was using crutches & I carried a cane & now we use niether/ We are both in our 70's. Give it a try!!

Hello Gold_Hat, Aren't Celebrex and Vioxx essentially the same drug, just made by different companies (one is Merck and the other is Pfizer if I remember correctly) ? Are there real difference between the two of them? I've heard that they don't upset your stomach as some of the older drugs do. Erming

Have you tried Celebrex? I hear it works wonders...I have used Vioxx and it worked well for me.

I have not heard of Arava, but I know that a family member had severe rheumatoid arthritis and benefited from acupuncture! The practioner was an MD and an acupuncturist and based in NJ.

Hi, Does anyone know about the new arthritis drug called Arava? I'm curious to hear your experiences with it. --Barry
