  • Perceived effectiveness for Trigger finger or thumb: Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 3600 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: This Target brand "Up&UP" has been every bit as effective for me as TripleFlex, which was better than FlexoPlex, both of which were much better than generic glucosamine alone. Maybe the up&up works better because the recommended dose is higher, but even with the higher dose, it is only 2/3 the cost per month as the brand names.
Cost: < $25 monthly
