Since Cosamin provides nutrients, changes may occur more slowly than would be expected with drug compounds. We recommend an initial administration period of four to six weeks.
You should notice changes in three to four weeks, but it may take five to six weeks before noticeable changes are observed. After the initial administration period, dosing can be lowered to a maintenance level which will vary between individuals.
Decrease daily dosage in increments of 1 capsule every two weeks until you reach the number of capsules daily that maintains a desired comfort level. Dosage can be increased at any time depending on your needs. If you do not respond as well when dosage is decreased, return to previous dosage level. Also activity level can vary the dosage requirements. Dosage may have to be increased in times of high physical demand.
