Glucosamine/Chondroitin okay with chemo?


Question from Terri: The results of my pre-chemo tests all came back good, but I do have a touch of arthritis in my knees. I was told I could take Glucosamine and Chondroitin to help joints and bones. I will be on four sessions of Taxol after I finish my four sessions of AC. Can I still take my Glucosamine/Chondroitin while I am on chemo?
