Question Details

 are chondroitin / glucosamine blood thinners i take plavix


There is concern about taking chondroitin with blood thinners. Chondroitin potentially acts as a blood thinner, therefore people on blood thinners that choose to take chondroitin need to be closely monitored by their prescribing Doctor. You should consider taking glucosamine by itself to avoid any unnecessary risk.

In Health,
