Apparently willow bark is an ingredient. This is the basic form of aspirin. So if you are not able to take aspirin or other NSAIDs it would not be wise to take this. Also if using blood thinners it may not be good to take.
I suggest you contact your pharmacist, give all the meds and supplements you take and have them check this.
I have tried it unsucessfully for over two years according to a doctors advice for my osteoarthritis, & it didn't do a thing for me, but just my personal opinion. I have heard others say it can help. I think it could be at the stage you are at, & very individualized. I can't take NSAIDS for pain control so sort of up a creek. They have their own website if you just google the name instaflex it comes right up with advice etc... and wecome back Laura...
I'm 77, had severe knee OA that started about 7 or 8 years ago. I've been using a multicomponent supplement called OmniFlex for about 5 years and have full knee function with little or no pain during or after vigorous exercise. It has fish oil, krill oil, rosehips, collagen II, and pine bark extract.
